Summit Street Changes

PARTA Bus Route Update

The roadwork scheduled to take place this fall in front of the Student Center will impact two PARTA bus routes, effective Aug. 28.  The Summit Street Express (#54) and Allerton (#55) busses will continue to provide service, but please note the information below for each route:

Summit Street Express (#54)
The #54 bus will continue to provide expedited service between the Student Center, Greek Village and East Summit St. but will not use West Campus Center Dr.  Instead it will service Greek Village at Ted Boyd Dr. across from the Rec Center, and detour to the Student Center along Allerton St. and Morris St. and enter the Student Center at Janik Dr.  There will be no additional stops made along this detour.  Greek Village passengers should catch the #54 bus into the Student Center and the #55 bus back to Greek Village.  Signs have been posted notifying all passengers of this change.

Allerton (#55)

The #55 bus will still provide service between the Student Center, the Allerton Sports Complex, and Greek Village, but will not use West Campus Center Dr.  Instead, it will use Allerton St. to Morris St. and enter the Student Center at Janik Dr.  There will be no additional stops made along this detour.  Greek Village passengers will want to be sure to catch the #54 bus into the Student Center and the #55 bus back to Greek Village.  Signs have been posted notifying all passengers of this change.
