The schedule for the Sunday shuttle to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods has been revised following confusion in past weeks that left students stranded, waiting for the last listed bus to pick them up at the grocery stores. The new schedule lists the shuttle as running on Sundays from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., with an earlier end time than originally posted. The last bus picks up students at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s at 3:47 p.m. and 3:49 p.m., respectively. Students going to the stores on that run will not be provided transportation back to campus. Service ends at 4:04 p.m., when the bus stops at Random Hall for the final time.
