Changes in the REDLINE Shuttle route have been continual as the shuttle tries to find the perfect fit at Colorado State University- Pueblo.

The REDLINE Shuttle is a transportation service offered to the students of CSU-Pueblo.

All students who choose to utilize this service must have a valid student ID; those students will then be transported to one of nine locations, as opposed to the previous eight locations.

The newest addition to the list of locations is Kings Soopers, upon the requests of students for convenience. The shuttle now runs in that direction allowing access to the surrounding establishments.

These nine locations include: Walgreens, Pueblo Mall, King Soopers, Applebee’s, Starbucks Coffee, Wal-Mart, Tinseltown, Kohl’s and Angelo’s Pizza.

Last month there were changes made to the REDLINE Shuttle route. With this change the, times and days the shuttle would run were extended to Friday from 5-11 p.m., Saturday and Sunday noon–10 p.m.

“Starting in March, the REDLINE Shuttle will be extending its hours on the weekends. The REDLINE Shuttle will now be running Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.,” an email sent out by Brent Lorenz, scheduling coordinator at CSU-Pueblo, on Wednesday Feb. 27, said.

Although the hour change was a new change, a newer modification was made on Thursday Feb. 28, via email from Lorenz.

“The REDLINE Shuttle will now make stops at the Wolf Village Club house. The REDLINE Shuttle will pick-up and drop-off at Wolf Village every other run. Also, the REDLINE Shuttle has added King Soopers to its list of stops,” Lorenz said.

A large population of CSU-Pueblo’s students reside in Wolf Village and although Wolf Village is not in contract with the university, the REDLINE Shuttle will run there in order help better assist the students.

“We made the decision to add Wolf Village due to the increase interest in students wanting us to stop at Wolf Village. At this time, the REDLINE Shuttle will only make stop at Wolf Village every other run. March is a trial basis to see if the demand is there for the REDLINE to continue to stop at Wolf Village,” Lorenz said.

However, the current schedule may not be permanent.

“The schedule is subject to change, and we are constantly trying to see how we can better serve our students here at CSU-Pueblo,” Lorenz said.
