There are several new changes to the Topper Transit service. 

Jennifer Tougas, director of Parking and Transportation, said a temporary stop was added to the Green Line—the Priceless IGA on Scottsville Road.

Tougas said the stop was added due to request from students.

The White Line also stops at Campus Evolution Villages, while the Red Line has a stop at The Columns. 

Tougas said the new stops were added for student convenience. 

“(To) make it easier for people to get to and from campus,” Tougas said.

Last semester, due to the loss of about 500 parking spaces over the last two years, several changes were made to both parking and the Topper Transit services. Changes include new transit stops and re-zoned parking lots.  

Tougas said that about 4,900 people used the Topper Transit Service on Monday, the highest ridership ever for the first day of classes.

“It reflects that the new routes are working really well,” Tougas said.
