Traffic Detour for Wednesday, August 21

Changes to Bus Route Numbers

As a result of a transfer of services from Birnie Bus to Centro, several bus routes servicing off-campus locations have new numbers. The new route numbers will be seen on the front of Centro buses beginning Aug. 19.

The following are the Fall 2019 Centro route numbers and the corresponding discontinued Birnie Bus route numbers:

  • SU145 – James St/Westcott St (new); #33 James/E. Genesee (discontinued)
  • SU245 – Nob Hill (New fare-free zone service) (new); #31 Nob Hill (discontinued)
  • SU240 – Nob Hill (Now in fare-free zone) (new)
  • SU243 – East Campus (new); #35 East Campus (discontinued)
  • SU443X – Connective Corridor Express – College Place/Warehouse (new); #39D Warehouse Express Direct (discontinued)

The decision to switch service from Birnie Bus to Centro also means that students utilizing these routes will board at the main College Place bus stop, instead of at the designated Birnie Bus area further down College Place at the side of Lyman Hall.

Quad Lot Permit Holders (formerly known as Quad 1)

Summer construction is fully underway as Campus Planning, Design and Construction works to advance several critical infrastructure projects.

As a result of the work specifically occurring near the Dome, we expect the Quad parking lot (formerly known as Q1) to experience occasional disruptions. Also, beginning Monday, July 8, parking in the rear of the Quad lot will be limited due to construction activity. The loading docks at Falk College and Heroy Geology Laboratory will remain open. The work is expected to continue through winter break.

Throughout this construction schedule, Quad permit holders will continue to have access to Quad parking. Service permits will only be honored based on parking availability.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience. Parking and Transit Services will reach out to Quad permit holders for any future change in accommodations.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Parking and Transit Services at 315.443.4652, or via email at

Irving Garage Permit Holders

Beginning Tuesday, May 28, concrete repair work will commence on the bridge from Irving Ave Garage.  To help minimize the disruption to permit holders, the majority of the work will be done during evening hours, after 5:00 PM.   The first phase of the work will take two to three weeks and should have no impact on the use of the bridge during business hours.  The second phase of the repair will require that the bridge be closed for two or three days to allow a coating to dry.  This work will be planned around a weekend  or the 4th of July holiday period.  Additional information regarding the bridge closure will be provided when the schedule has been confirmed.

We appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this time and look forward to providing you with an enhanced parking experience.

Please contact our office at 315.443.4652 with any questions.
