Archer Road Parking Map



Dear Colleagues:

On Jan. 7, the newly constructed Archer Road parking lot is scheduled to open, adding 185 spaces for faculty and staff with Blue decals. The lot can be accessed from Mowry Road.

The Employee Courtesy Shuttle (Blue Line) will extend its shuttle service to the new Archer Road parking lot during peak hours — from 6:30-10 a.m. and from 2-6 p.m. Please see the above map for more details.

We expect the average cycle time for each shuttle to be approximately 20 minutes. Please keep in mind we have two employee courtesy shuttles running this route during the listed time frame for the Archer Road parking lot services. On average, wait time between shuttles should be 10 minutes.

We will monitor the shuttle service and make adjustments depending on ridership and customer needs.

Additional courtesy shuttle route schedules are listed below and maps can be found on the Bridge under ‘Employee Parking.’
