CAMBUS to discontinue service to stop #3130 Hawk Lot 2

April 17, 2019

Beginning Saturday, May 11, 2019, CAMBUS will no longer service stop #3130 Hawk Lot 2. 

During the summer of 2019, construction will begin in the Hawkeye Commuter Lot to move stop #3125 Hawk Lot 1 south of where the current stop is.  The new Hawk Lot 1 stop will feature a new, larger shelter and other amenities.  This change will affect the travel patterns of buses that serve the Hawkeye Commuter Lot.  During the planning process of this project, CAMBUS evaluated boarding data of the Hawk Lot 2 stop to determine if the stop was still needed.  A study of the boarding data found that even when CAMBUS serves the Hawk Lot 2 stop on nights and weekends, over 90% of riders still prefer to board at the Hawk Lot 1 stop.

The decision to discontinue service to the Hawk Lot 2 stop was also made in part to improve service efficiency on the Hawkeye-Interdorm route on nights and weekends, as well as to eliminate confusion for riders on when buses service each Hawkeye Commuter Lot stop.
