Route 16 - Gold (Northwest)

Part of 10/40 Routes

WIU Campus – WIU Residence Halls – City Center

Route 16 Gold (Northwest) serves as both a university Carousel Route and a Municipal route. It circles campus like a Gold Bus, but when it gets to Piper street, it makes a quick run over to the City Center and meets with the 10/40 Routes. 16 Gold provides direct to class service from the City Center. It Runs from 7:10 AM to 6:10 PM Monday through Friday, and 10:10 AM through 5:40 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, 18 Southeast. 16 Gold (Northwest) provides direct "to Class" access to campus exactly like a 2 Gold Carousel Route.

Helpful Tips!

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.

16 Gold NW connect to shopping via 17 Northeast, and to the south-west residential areas including Eisenhower Tower and Bridgeway via 19 Southwest.
