CWRU begins trial shuttle service in Little Italy, Cleveland Heights

Anastazia Vanisko, Staff Reporter

With an ever-increasing amount of people commuting to the University Circle Area, Case Western Reserve University has added a morning shuttle to Little Italy and Cleveland Heights. The goal is to provide an alternative mode of transportation for graduate students and CWRU employees. This shuttle is targeted toward a specific group, as opposed to the changes suggested by Cleveland Heights and University Circle, which focused on all commuters to University Circle.

The shuttle will run from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. until late February. The route will be similar to the Coventry route currently run by some evening CWRU shuttles. Whether or not this new shuttle will continue to run depends on the demand seen in the experimental time period.

One possibility, though it is unexpected, is that the shuttle will get more passengers than it can hold. Though the target users are affiliated with CWRU, the shuttle is free and nothing is stopping other potential passengers from catching a ride.
