New for Fall 2018!
The main bus stop for East campus has been relocated to the Campus Rec Center circle. This change will help to centralize the bus stop within East campus, and aid in bus and shuttle operations with new traffic patterns stemming from construction on the Pawtucket Street bridge.
The City of Lowell has been awarded a grant from the United States Department of Transportation’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER VII) Discretionary Grant Program to repair and rehabilitate six canal bridges in Lowell. The two closest to campus include:
Construction has started on some of these bridges already.
Massachusetts Department of Transportation closed the canal bridge on Market Street over the Western Canal, on September 18, 2017. This closure will allow the state to rebuild the bridge, and is expected to reopen in the Fall of 2018. During this time shuttles will be detoured that need to travel in this area.
UMass Lowell is continuing to partner with the Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) and Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority (MVRTA), students and employees will now be able to ride all LRTA buses and routes 01/41 on the MVRTA for FREE! All you have to do is show your UCARD. For more information go to our Announcements webpage.
