Relocation of Intercity Bus Loading--From Memorial Union to 200 Block of Lake Street
Thursday, October 31, 2019 - 3:14pm
Due to ongoing congestion, traffic and safety concerns at Langdon Street (in front of the Memorial Union), intercity bus loading will be relocated to the west side of the 200 block of Lake Street (W Johnson Street to W Dayton Street) over the next several weeks. Intercity buses will pick up and drop off passengers on the west side of the street, adjacent to the Gordon Dining and Event Center terrace (see picture attached).
Signage will be installed along that side of the block indicating and the parking meters will be bagged and unavailable for public parking. Two bus shelters will also be installed for use by intercity bus passengers. The intercity bus companies will have personnel stationed periodically at Langdon Street during the transition period, to assist passengers unaware of this change. The intercity bus companies will also include this relocation information on their web pages and along with ticketing information.
Starting on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, Badger Bus, Lamers and Jefferson Lines will begin passenger loading at the Lake Street location. Coach USA services (including Megabus and Van Galder) will begin passenger loading along Lake Street on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. Passengers are encouraged to contact the bus companies directly if they have questions regarding boarding and alighting locations.
Direct any questions to the contact listed.
