  • 3:45 PM – 6:00 PM

Parking Lot 85, Hawkeye Commuter 

Parking Lot 85 permit holders have been temporarily re-assigned to Parking Lot 65. Because of the reduced need for service to this parking lot, one Hawk-Lot Hospital bus is reallocated to further increase Hospital Finkbine Arena service in the interest of social distancing. See Hawkeye Parking Lot bus service schedule on the alerts page.

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Parking and Transportation’s operations are focused on supporting the critical operations of UI Hospitals & Clinics and the university. Operations may quickly change. In response to COVID-19, CAMBUS evaluates daily boarding numbers at commuter parking lots by departure and will quickly implement changes as needed.

Buses are cleaned twice a day with an EPA approved cleaner effective against COVID-19. CAMBUS also completed an intensive deep cleaning each week. If riding the bus, make efforts to practice social distancing as much as possible and use every day preventative actions identified by the CDC to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
