Starting Sunday, June 9, the City of Gainesville will temporarily move the bus stop used by RTS public buses and Shands Shuttles for renovations and will reopen the first week of July. The temporary stop will be slightly east of the existing location, right outside the front circle of UF Health Shands Hospital.

The Employee Direct Express Shuttle North (Purple Line) will adjust its route to accommodate this temporary change. It will follow the ShandsVan Employee Courtesy Shuttle (Blue Line) route after leaving the 1329 Building to stop at the temporary location then continue on its normal route. This may add a few additional minutes to its current route time.

The Blue Line will continue on its normal route, while stopping at the shared temporary location. No other shuttle routes will be impacted. To review shuttle routes, search “Shuttle Service and Maps” on the Bridge.

We appreciate your patience during this time.

If you have any questions, please reach out to UF Health Shands Parking & Transportation.

Thank you.
