UI slates meeting to discuss Cambus service for Hawkeye Family Housing

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Plans for providing Cambus service to Hawkeye Family Housing will be discussed at a public meeting Thursday, July 17, at noon in Room 101 of the Becker Communication Studies Building on the campus of the University of Iowa. Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting and provide input on the proposed changes.

David Ricketts, UI director of parking and transportation, will lead a discussion of the proposed service for the family housing units located on the far west edge of the UI campus. That service is scheduled to begin August 25, the first day of classes for the 1997-98 academic year. The proposal calls for daytime, weekday service to the area, which previously has not been served by Cambus.

Ricketts will also explain proposed changes to other Cambus routes. Those changes are necessary because Cambus does not have enough buses to provide the new service to Hawkeye Family Housing without altering its other routes, he noted. The changes will affect the Red, Blue and Interdorm routes as well as various shuttle services.
