LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- After the Blue Tiger Shuttle took off for the first time in early March, the system has been a huge success. Students have been pleased with how smooth the process has been going thus far.
“I’ve taken the shuttle to Walmart at least three times already and I’ve had zero problems,” freshman Cory Macon said. “The drivers have been timely (every time) while also driving safely.”
Due to the success of the first shuttle, Lincoln has now added an additional shuttle with some brand-new stops. Shuttle services will now provide students with free roundtrip transportation to the Capital Mall and Wildwood Shopping Center.
The second shuttle took off for the first time from Scruggs University Center on Wednesday evening. “My friends and I took the first shuttle to the shopping center, ate dinner at Chili’s, and were taken back to campus on the last shuttle,” sophomore Mariah Wilson stated. “We are already planning to take the next trip to the mall.”
The second shuttle will continue to operate weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 5:15 p.m. to 8 p.m.
