Faculty Handbook: Campus Services
Razorback Transit provides fare-free fixed route bus service to University of Arkansas students, faculty, staff and the general public during all hours of operation. Complimentary Paratransit van service is also available for all certified eligible individuals who cannot ride the fixed route buses. Full transit services are provided, with 17 buses serving eleven routes, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on class days throughout the fall and spring semesters, including final exam days (mid August to mid May). Full service is also provided during the two move in days (Thursday and Friday) prior to the start of each fall semester. Bus service is not provided on official university holidays. Night reduced service is provided Monday through Friday 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. throughout the fall and spring semesters (mid August to mid May). The night reduced service combines the eleven regular routes into five reduced routes. All routes, with the exception of the Red Route are on a thirty-minute schedule and depart Union Station Transit Facility on the half hour. The Red route is now served by three buses on a twenty minute schedule from 7:00 AM until 10:30 AM, then a thirty minute schedule from 10:30 AM until 3:30 PM, then a twenty minute schedule from 3:30 PM until 6:20 PM, with the last Red bus departing Union Station at 5:20 PM. during the summer season. During the fall and spring semesters additional Red Reduced service operates one bus from 6:00 PM until 10:00 PM with the last bus departing campus at 9:10 p.m. The Red route now serves the newly opened Uptown Campus. The Purple Reduced Route is on a thirty-minute schedule. Saturday reduced service is provided during the fall and spring semesters from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Saturday reduced service routes cover the same areas as the night reduced routes, and the time intervals are the same with the exception of the Red route, which only operates one bus with departures from campus on the hour. All route maps are available on line at transit.uark.edu under Transit Operations. They are also available on each bus, the Student Union Information Service Desk, and at the Transit and Parking Department at 155 Razorback Road (ADSB 131). Gold and Silver route service will be available to the general public and students on home football game Saturdays. There will be a special map and directions for these days. Summer Reduced Service is provided from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with the same routes in operation as the Night Reduced Service (mid May to mid August). There is no Saturday service during this time. During semester break (mid December to mid January) the reduced service schedule is observed. Charter bus services are available to all university departments, at reasonable rates, for field trips. For charter arrangements or information, contact the Transit and Parking Department (479) 575-7913.
