Route 16 - Northwest
Part of 10/40 Routes
WIU Campus – WIU Residence Halls – City Center
Route 16 Northwest serves as both a university Carousel Route and a Municipal route. When it leaves the North Quad, It circles campus like a Gold Bus (except USB), but when it gets to Ward street, it diverts to the City Center by turning south then running east on Jackson street, connecting campus to the rest of the city. After it exchanges passengers with the other 10/40 buses, it returns to campus at Lincoln/Washington/Grote, then goes north along McArthur until it arrives at the North Quad at :20/:50 of each hour.
16 Northwest provides "direct to class" service from the City Center to campus. It Runs from 7:10 AM to 6:10 PM Monday through Friday, and 10:10 AM through 6:10 PM only when WIU Campus is In Session.
How it works:
The 10/40 routes meet at the city center at :10 and :40 minutes after the hour to exchange passengers with the other 10/40, or "Corner" routes. Namely: 17 Northeast, 19 Southwest, and on the rare occasion, 11 Bomber Express. 16 Northwest provides from City Center "To Class" access to Campus, timed to get you to class on time..
If a bus is too far off of schedule, the routes that were scheduled to meet it may be forced to move on before it arrives. Please note there is often a 25/55 bus that services your destination in the unfortunate circumstance that your bus arrives too late to transfer.
Times listed below indicate minutes after the hour.
