Because of persistent technological issues that caused unreliability, as well as unsustainable repair costs, the Center for Sustainability has retired the eBus. The eBus will no longer run daily shuttle services.

“The Center for Sustainability has been delighted to serve the campus community by providing environmentally friendly shuttle services with its research-based electric bus for the past three years,” says Stephane Menand, assistant director the Center for Sustainability. “We recognize the hardship this might create for some students, but we have exhausted all available options before coming to this difficult decision.”

The campus has created a Transportation Committee and hired an outside consultant to discuss an overall transportation plan for the campus and the city of Rolla. It is in the study phase and organizers are seeking campus input. If you would like to share your thoughts, please take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/msttransitstudy.
