The Valpo Transit Bus is a transportation option at Valparaiso University where students can request the bus at 23 different locations on campus ranging from the Gellersen Engineering and Mathematics building at the east end of campus to Wesemann Hall at the far west. This is a handy transportation option when it comes to traveling long distances on campus or when the weather is not ideal. This study examined the average time a student has to wait for the bus categorized by location and time of day. Data was collected by requesting the transit bus on the app and then timing how long it takes to arrive at that location once the request was made. This information will be used to inform student expectations on probable waiting times. Interviews with bus drivers were also performed to add additional information about the operational parameters of the service.
