Students who take the Campus Loop and Wonder World bus routes will have to adjust to temporary changes in the tram system.
According to a university-wide email, Wonder World buses will now run every 11 minutes at times of peak usage and will no longer stop on Concho Street. Buses will instead stop at San Jacinto Hall and the Undergraduate Admissions Center off Guadalupe Street.
The Campus Loop bus will run every 10 minutes during its busiest times.
Joe Richmond, Director of Transportation Services, said changes are being made to these two routes because of construction on south campus. The re-routing will help buses avoid an intersection under construction that has narrow lanes and is hard for trams to navigate, Richmond said.
Richmond said students probably won’t notice a large difference in times, and the changes do not have a specific end date. According to the university-wide email, the changes will stay in place until at least the end of the semester.
“We are feeling our way through the construction on south campus,” Richmond said. “We are trying to work together to mitigate the impact on students.”
