Fixed Route FAQs

  • A fixed route refers to a predetermined route that shuttle buses or other transit modes follow to transport riders (employees, visitors, students, faculty, staff, etc.) between different locations on or near a campus or city setting. The route is fixed, meaning that it follows a specific path and schedule on a regular basis. The fixed route typically includes stops at various designated locations, such as hospital buildings, different offices, residence halls, academic buildings, parking lots and other popular destinations on a campus or in the community. Fixed route transportation is designed to provide a reliable and convenient mode of transportation and is often free or provided at a low cost to riders.

  • Fixed route transportation offers many benefits to riders and the larger community. It provides a convenient, accessible, and cost-effective way to move around campus, while also promoting sustainability and reducing traffic congestion. Campuses should continue to invest in fixed route transportation to ensure that their communities have access to reliable and sustainable transportation options.

  • Fixed route campus transportation planning and scheduling involves analyzing demand, designing routes, developing schedules, implementing technology and continuously monitoring and adjusting to meet the needs of the community. By providing a reliable and convenient mode of transportation, fixed route transportation helps support the mission of the organization and enhances the overall campus experience.

  • Scheduling software is a critical tool in campus fixed route planning. It can assist transportation departments or providers in optimizing routes, creating efficient schedules, providing real-time tracking, scheduling drivers and optimizing routes on an ongoing basis. By using scheduling software, campuses can provide a reliable and efficient fixed route transportation system that meets the needs of their campus or community.
