UAF shuttle bus coming downtown

share on:
UAF’s new electric shuttle bus awaits passengers in front of the Elvey Building on a recent May morning.

Sixteen UAF students came downtown for the October 6 First Friday under a new ASUAF initiative to give kids something to do in the community – downtown. A shuttle bus will operate as a no-fare, single round trip route to bring students downtown throughout winter on first and third Fridays. The shuttle can become just that – a shuttle, making multiple trips to downtown over the course of the evening – should student demand to come downtown warrant it. Students will disembark at the Yukon Quest log cabin at roughly 6:30 PM and depart by 9 PM.
