Students, faculty and staff can now ride around campus in a new electric shuttle bus thanks to the office of sustainable energy and environmental engagement (OSE3). S&T’s eBus, a fully electric-powered, plug-in shuttle, is expected to average 80 miles per charge. It can accommodate 22 seated passengers and another 10 standing passengers. There will be no charge for S&T faculty, staff and students to use the shuttle during the spring 2014 semester. Service starts today (Monday, April 14).

The bus will complete a loop around the S&T campus twice an hour from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It will leave its terminal at E3 Commons and first stop at Miner Village. From there, the shuttle will make stops at Emerson Hall, Centennial Hall, the Havener Center and the Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building before returning to the E3 Commons.

OSE3 would like to remind users that this is a research project funded through a grant from the Federal Transit Administration. Because this is a new technology, there were unanticipated delays in the start of the shuttle service.
