Route 1 - Purple

Carousel & Carousel Night & Weekend

Route 1 - Purple travels the circumference of campus in a clockwise direction and serves all major buildings on campus. Route 1 starts at 7:15 am while campus is in session, and runs a till 6 PM, at which time Purple Nights & Weekend continues into the evening with a single bus on a scheduled or "Timed" Route.

How does it work?

Purple Day does not run on a time-point schedule, but rather maintains its frequency by staging at specific locations. While 2 buses provide frequent service between peak times, there are as many as 4 buses running during Class exchange times (including 11 City Purple ). This should provide a bus every 4-6 minutes during peak times.

Purple Nights and Weekends takes over at 6:00 PM M-F, on any of its scheduled hours on Saturday or Sunday by running its schedule much as any of our other Timed Routes:  Never early, seldom late.

Useful Tips!

During Class exchanges that are at the top of the hour, we will be bringing in an New Route called 11 City Purple  It will leave the North Quad at :45 of each hour, and Lincoln/Washington/Grote at :50.  This bus run's the Purple route from the Quad, all they around and back through the Quad again till it reaches Charles/Adams, where it then heads off to the City Center.  Please use this bus as a Purple bus during these class exchanges. .Also, at these peak times our Purple and Gold routes can be very busy, especially along the "strip".  As hard as we try to keep them moving, it may be a while before another bus reaches the Quad/Elting/Charles street area.  Please give yourself plenty of time to get to class.
