LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The new Blue Tiger Shuttle transported students for the first time from Scruggs University Center Tuesday evening after beginning its first 5 p.m.-8 p.m. run. Students were ready to go for the debut roundtrip service.

“I think this is a really cool upgrade to the university,” said senior Omar Allen. The first tour was indeed a success, as students had zero complaints about the ride and were transported to the store and back safely and on schedule.

This new service will provide Lincoln students with free roundtrip transportation from the front of Scruggs University Center to Walmart and Target. The shuttle will run weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with the fist pick-up at 5 p.m and the last drop off at 8 p.m. Students will be allowed to shop for 30 minutes before being picked up by the shuttle and carried back to Scruggs.

“I am super grateful that we have this shuttle now,” sophomore Dontonio Moore said. “Now I can save money instead of paying for an Uber to the store and back.”
