MISSOULA - A new UDASH bus route is coming to the University of Montana campus this fall.
Students voted to increase the transportation fee in April so that additional bus drivers could be hired. Now, there are enough drivers for a new route.
The Blue Line will start running on the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 28, 2023, and will supplement the often crowded Red Line.
The Blue Line's route will start at the student apartments at the Lewis and Clark Village transfer center, move towards Dornblaser Park and Ride on Arthur Avenue, make a stop at the UM Transit Hub and then continue on to the Arts and Culture Museum and the Science Complex.
The Blue Line will run every 30 minutes during the peak times of 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The existing Red, Purple, Green, and Gold lines will continue to run as normal.
