IMPORTANT ALERTS – Danforth Campus

Due to the high volume of requests we are currently processing, our responses to your individual requests or inquiries may be delayed.  Please be patient, we will respond to you as soon as we are able.

ParkSmart Alert
Beginning Feb. 1, a majority of ParkSmart permit holders will shift from the current West Campus location to the South 40 on the Danforth Campus. These permit holders can access the South 40 via Wallace and Forsyth or Big Bend and Shepley Drive. We anticipate this shift to remain in place through July 31. To offset the cost of these changes, the West Campus shuttle will temporarily cease operations starting Feb. 1; however, Campus Circulator has been adjusted to include a new stop at Goldfarb and a new shuttle, the Goldfarb Express, has also been added. Learn more in the January Newsletter.

DeBaliviere Place Shuttle Alert
Due to construction along Pershing, the DeBaliviere Place shuttle will be rerouted. Passengers normally boarding on Pershing, may access the shuttle at the bus stop on the northwest corner of Clara and Pershing. Please expect service delays. We apologize for any inconvenience. Learn More
