Help Shape the Future of Parking & Transportation

UAB Parking & Transportation Services is hosting several public events to hear opinions about riding, driving, pedaling and parking on campus and to listen to ideas for improvement.

These are part of a campus wide parking and transportation study UAB will be conducting through summer with the assistance of Kimley-Horn Consulting, a recognized leader for strategic planning in this area.  The goal is to develop a comprehensive plan that will guide future planning, management and policy.

Having candid input from the campus community is critical to success.  Plan to attend one of these sessions:

  • 6-8 p.m. April 19 in Hill Student Center Room 220
  • 3-5 p.m. April 19 in the West Pavilion Atrium
  • 6-8 p.m. April 20 in the West Pavilion Atrium


Blazer Express Route Changes

UAB Parking & Transportation Services has listened to its customers.  As we continue to evaluate the Blazer Express transit system for improvements, we will no longer offer the night Purple route after 2016 Spring Semester Break.  We have been monitoring the passenger counts on this route for quite a while and have seen very little passenger activity on this route.

As a result, the service hours that were used on the Purple route will now be split between the Silver and Orange routes.  This change will allow us to have a bus on the Silver route until 9:00 PM and an additional bus on the Orange route from 7:00 PM – 12:00 AM.  Customers who use these routes during the evening/night hours will have more efficient service.

Thanks for your continued support of UAB Parking & Transportation Services.


Blazer Express Shopping Shuttle

The Blazer Express Shopping Shuttle will resume service for this semester beginning Sunday, January 17.  The Shopping Shuttle service operates from 2:00PM until 5:00PM on Sundays and travels from Blazer Circle (between Blazer Hall and Camp Hall) to Wal-Mart located on Lakeshore Drive and K-Mart located on Green Springs Hwy.


Service Resumes for Lot 15U Stop - Gold Route

The Lot 15U bus stop on the Gold Route has resumed service.  Permanent signage is not in-place marking the bus stop, yet we are diligently working to have it placed.  The stop is located on 17th Street, between 10th Avenue S and 11th Avenue S.
