Bloomington Transit is reducing campus-oriented bus routes for the expected lack of students during the IU spring break. All other routes will run regularly.

“Over half of our riders are IU students,” said Bloomington Transit Customer Service Manager Eli McCormick. “There's a lot less demand for the service.”

The Route 7 Henderson/Walnut Express, Route 6 Limited and Route 9 Limited will not be in service March 14-22. McCormick said these routes are primarily for students.

The Route 6 Campus Shuttle and Route 9 will operate under the semester break schedule March 15-21. Less buses will run on these days.

BTaccess, a transportation service to assist people with disabilities who are unable to use the fixed bus routes, will operate until 7:30 p.m. March 15 and 21. It will run regularly on all other days.
