Salt Lake City college launches free shuttle

For the first time in school history, Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) launched a free campus shuttle service available to all SLCC students and employees. Called the B-Line, the inter-campus shuttle connects the college’s South City, Meadowbrook and Taylorsville Redwood campuses.

All patrons must provide SLCC identification to ride.

The shuttle leaves South City Campus at the east entrance on the hour beginning at 7:00 a.m. on all weekdays for which the college is open. The route runs from the South City Campus to the Meadowbrook TRAX station, then to the Utah Transit Authority bus stop on the north side of the Taylorsville Redwood campus. The service runs until 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and until 2:00 p.m. on Fridays.

The college also provides a "Shuttle Tracker" that lets riders track the location of the shuttle in real time online. Ridership will be tracked to determine whether to expand the shuttle to SLCC’s other campuses.
