UW Offers Student Transportation Due to Cold Weather

December 4, 2013

With extremely cold weather forecast for the rest of the week, the University of Wyoming is offering free transportation to help students attend classes on Thursday and Friday.

Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on those days, any UW students, whether they live on or off campus, may call 766-5179 to arrange for a ride to and from class. Depending upon the number of calls, students could expect some delays.

“At this point, with only a slight chance for more snowfall, we don’t anticipate closing the campus,” says Mark Collins, UW’s associate vice president for operations. “But we want to make sure students are able to get to their classes without jeopardizing their safety during this cold snap.”

UW Transit and Parking Services will increase the number of drivers and vehicles available during the daylight hours Thursday and Friday. In addition, the UW Police Department will have an extra officer on duty to assist in transporting students. Regularly scheduled UW bus routes will be in operation.

The National Weather Service forecasts a low temperature of minus 29 degrees tonight, with a wind chill factor reaching as low as minus 50. Thursday night’s forecast calls for a low of minus 23 degrees, with a wind chill as low as minus 35. High temperatures the next two days are expected to be slightly above zero.
