In order to ride on the shuttle, students must have a ticket, which they can reserve on the SGA website. The tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis, much like the system for shuttles the week of Thanksgiving.
“One of SGA’s core purposes is to find ways to improve the lives of students during their time at TCU,” SGA Vice President of External Affairs Katie Phillips said. “In providing shuttles to the students, we believe that this is a way to make it easier for students to get to and from the airport. It also alleviates the stress of having to find a ride to the airport during finals week when everyone is busy enough as it is.”
The shuttles will start running Thursday, Dec. 17, picking students up from the Brown-Lupton University Union (BLUU) Circle Drive. On that Thursday, shuttles to the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, gate C2, will leave at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The shuttles going to the Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) main terminal will leave at 12 p,m. and 2:30 p.m.
The next day, Friday, Dec. 18, shuttles to the DFW airport, gate C2, will leave hourly starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. Shuttles to DAL, main terminal, will leave at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Return shuttles to take students back to campus will only run on Sunday, Jan. 10. The shuttles picking students up at DFW, gate C2, will leave hourly starting at noon and going until 8 p.m. The shuttles picking students up from Love Field will leave at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
The SGA website also reminded students about alternative methods to getting to the airport such as the super shuttle, train, taxicab and Uber/Lyft services.
If students have any questions about the shuttle service, they can email the SGA Vice President of Operations Ryker Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
