The pilot, which begins Sunday, Sept. 16, is part of the positive feedback that the University has received regarding ways to help increase safety within the campus community.

The CATS Late Night Shuttle continues to be a popular transportation choice within the campus community, as ridership has nearly quadrupled since Sept. 2017; OHIO’s Transportation and Parking Services team recently increased the service’s resources to best accommodate growing demand.
