T bus begins 2017 summer service June 1

The T bus will commence the summer route on June 1st when classes begin.

During the summer an abbreviated schedule is run with only The Hill Route from 7 am to 6 pm approx. every 15 minutes. The Neyland Express, Fort, and Late Nite routes do not operate in the summer. In addition, the JIAM shuttle does not operate in the summer as it actually is pulled from the Neyland Express during the school year.

Map thumbnailT Bus Map SUMMER 2017

For the summer of 2017 – the route has significant changes for route and bus stops due to the road closure and construction zones.

Please note – bus stops along Volunteer Blvd at the Pedestrian Walkway and Haslam Business Building have been removed for the summer due to traffic only being able to operate one lane in each direction along this stretch. The closest stop to access Haslam, Claxton, Hodges, and the pedestrian mall will be at Phillip Fulmer at the Student Union.

T Access bus will operate from 7 am to 6 pm for those with mobility needs and an Access card.

T Link will operate from 7 pm to 6 am and serve as the connection you may need late at night.

ORNL/PSCC shuttle is operational from May 30-Aug 11.
