Thanks a pilot program created by the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) and Penn State Transportation Services, students flying from the University Park Airport can take advantage of a free airport shuttle service, paid for by UPUA and operated by Transportation Services.

The genesis of the service, according to UPUA Facilities Chairman Brent Rice, was a conversation with UPUA representative Vansh Prabhu, who hails from Colorado, regarding the lack of transportation options for getting to the airport.

"As he explained how difficult it was for him to get to the airport from campus each semester, it struck me that many students likely share this same difficulty with end-of-semester travel, and that UPUA might have an opportunity to help," Rice said.

Depending on participation in this spring's three-day pilot program, the service might be provided again during future semesters. To view the full Penn State press release, click here.
