The University of Denver (DU), along with MV Transportation and Tripshot, is launching two new transit routes that will provide vital connections between the university, regional transportation light rail stations, and surrounding neighborhoods.

The two new routes will collectively have 11 stops, running east and west from the campus. Bus stops will have signage informing riders about the Tripshot mobile app, which will provide real-time location tracking for the bus, plus route and schedule information.

Tripshot offers a software solution that allows operators to track every vehicle in a fleet in real time, create rider apps, seamlessly adjust schedules and create routes, set up payment systems, and schedule maintenance.

MV Transportation will operate the new service. It provides paratransit, fixed-route, campus and corporate shuttles, and student transportation services, partnering with over 200 city and county government transit agencies, school districts, universities, and corporations.

Founded in 1864, the University of Denver is a private research university and the oldest independent private university in the Rocky Mountain region. With approximately 5,600 undergraduate students and 6,100 graduate students, DU sits on a 125-acre main campus about five miles south of downtown Denver.
