Starting Aug. 15, Cañada College will launch a pilot shuttle program providing residents free, direct service between East Palo Alto and the campus, the school announced Thursday.
The shuttle program, launched in collaboration with Mosaic Global Transportation and Oxford Day Academy, will run every hour from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday, through Dec. 31. Pick-up will begin in East Palo Alto at 994 Beech St. and drop off will happen in front of the college’s Main Theatre at Building 3.
Residents and employees who live in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Belle Haven communities will benefit from the new pilot program
“The shuttle will be open to students, faculty and staff as well as community members who utilize the services available on campus such as SparkPoint, the Library and the DREAM Center,” the school said. “In addition, those who come to campus to attend athletic, performing arts or other college events can also take advantage of the convenient service.”
If the shuttle service proves to be popular, the school will explore the possibility of expanding locations to accommodate other service areas. For more information, visit www.canadacollege.edu/shuttle.
