Bear Line Shuttles
The BearLine Shuttle will run normal schedules when classes are in session. IF classes are NOT in-session, but University offices are OPEN the Red and Gold route will combine and run approximately every 15 minutes from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Please Note: The shuttles will not run any routes when classes are not in-session and University offices are closed.

The shuttle will make stops at Plaster Student Union and Glen Isle Center approximately every 25 minutes.
Bear Line offers a convenient and safe way to travel -- no matter where your destination on campus. Just JUMP ON from any of the well-lit, covered shuttle stops conveniently located across campus. Shuttles are climate controlled and offer a comfortable ride. No individual fares will be charged to any passenger. Buses are specially equipped for persons with disabilities.
Commuters -- leave the driving to us!
Bear Line can help take the pressure off finding a parking place in crowded lots. Simply park in one of the spacious, covered parking garages -- Bear Park North, located off John Q. Hammons Parkway with entrances on Cherry and Elm Streets, and Bear Park South, located at the intersection of Holland and Grand -- and catch the shuttle. Just be sure to arrive about 15 minutes early to allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
