Wednesday, October 7, 2020

A Message from Terri Graham, Interim President, West and Downtown Campuses

University of Central Florida (UCF) Parking and Transportation Services and UCF Student Government launched a new pilot program, the Grocery Shuttle, to offer trips to Publix for Valencia and UCF Downtown Campus students.

The Grocery Shuttle is available to take students from the Downtown Campus to the Publix at The Paramount on Lake Eola, 400 E. Central Blvd.

The shuttle runs twice per month on Tuesdays and has two roundtrips — one departing campus at 12:30 p.m. and the second departing at 8:30 p.m. The shuttles depart Publix at 1:45 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. respectively.

Schedule:

  • Tuesday, October 20, 2020
  • Tuesday, November 3, 2020
  • Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Pick-up/drop-off is located along Livingston Street, in front of Dr. Phillips Academic Commons at 528 W. Livingston Street.

A valid Valencia Downtown or UCF ID is required prior to boarding the shuttle. Please note seating capacity has been modified and reduced, and this includes the suspension of standees on the center aisles. All riders are required to wear a face mask while onboard the shuttle.

Riders can track the shuttle’s location here. Those with questions can contact shuttles@ucf.edu.

    I applaud this effort for our students. I remember having to cram four of my gal pals into my Volvo to run to the grocery store once a week (parking was over a mile away from our dorm). It was like a clown car on our way back as we had no space for us and our groceries.
    A shuttle sure would have been a welcome bonus back in my college days!
