COLUMBIA – The MU shuttle service now stops at Stephens College to accommodate about 100 MU students staying at Prunty Hall this fall.
The shuttle started stopping at Stephens the Thursday before classes started at MU and will not run next semester. The students will not live in Prunty Hall in the spring.
Buses are scheduled to stop at Prunty Hall every 30 minutes from 6:40 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, 6:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday to Saturday and noon to 1:30 a.m. on Sunday.
The UM Board of Curators is paying the city of Columbia for the shuttle service. This addition to the route cost the board $31,515, said Columbia Public Works Transportation Manager Ken Koopmans.
