Changes to Transit

Topper Transit

Several changes are being made to the Topper Transit service for the 2014-15 Academic Year to betterserve students. Bus frequencies are being increased, routes are being adjusted to better serve academic buildings on campus, and stops are being added to nearby off-campus student housing areas. These changes are reflected in the description of each bus route.

White Line – South Campus Park and Ride Route

The WHITE LINE SOUTH CAMPUS PARK AND RIDE route will now provide service every 6 minutes at peak. In addition, stops will be added at off-campus student housing areas on Creason Drive.

Red Line – North Campus Circulator Route

The Red Line is being re-routed as the RED LINE NORTH CAMPUS CIRCULATOR and will now serve 11th Avenue, off-campus student housing on Center Street, the Alumni Square Garage, and the academic buildings on "The Hill" and on State and Normal Streets. Service will be provided at 8 minute intervals at peak.

Please Note: The Red Line will no longer serve Chestnut Street.

Green Line – Evening Shopping Shuttle Route

The evening GREEN LINE "SHOPPING SHUTTLE" service will be increased to 20 minute frequency and will provide service to off-campus housing on Creason and Center Street.

GObg Transit

WKU PTS will be partnering with GObg public transit to increase the frequency of service on their PURPLE LINE route 5 to 15 minutes during peak service. This will provide better service to and from off-campus student housing on Campbell Lane on Thoroughbred Dr, Fields Dr, or Patton Way near the Kroger's shopping center.

PTS sells GObg transit passes at a discounted rate of $10/semester.
