Summer is Here!

All Routes Running the 2017 Summer "Break" Routes.

These Routes Are:

10/40 Routes 24 North, 15 East, 26 Northwest
25/55 Routes 17 Northeast, 18 Southeast, 19 Southwest & 12 South

Do to the Western Avenue Road Improvement Project: 

We needed to alter our planned 2017 summer "Break Routes" Schedule.  Look for the  alternate version of Routes 24 and 26.  We will continue to service what portions of campus we can and maintain a connection between the City of Macomb and Campus, but will be unable to do so with the routes as they were originally designed.  Thank you for your patience.

Do to the Construction on the Square:

We needed to further alter the routes to avoid entering the Square.  Access to the Square is not provided at the corner of Carroll and Lafayette on the North side, and the Southern end of the Clock Tower Park on the South side.  Routes 12 and 19 will service the South end, while Routes 15, 12 and 19 will service the North.
