Due to an increase in popularity this semester, a fourth Cougar Line shuttle has been added to the Energy Research Park bus route. After an increase in enrollment and multiple construction projects on campus, more students have chosen to utilize the ERP shuttle lot rather than spend extra time searching for a space at busier lots on campus.

The additional bus joined one other shuttle in running the ERP Express route on September 6, stopping only at the ERP lot and the University Center. The other two ERP shuttles also make a stop at a METRO Park and Ride transit center. After a substantial increase in demand for the service, UH Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) decided to add the extra shuttle from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accommodate more students during peak travel times.

PTS also opened up 300 additional parking spaces at Energy Research Park for student commuters on Monday, August 29. Student commuters should remember to give themselves extra time when arriving to campus in order to park, ride and get to class on campus.
