Hospital employees assigned to this lot face unique challenges due to their shifts in the hospital.  For nurses that are on-call, we have established a discounted on-call card for access to the deck for night/weekends.  A verification letter from your Director is required.   For more details, click the 'on-call' link to the left.

The Remote system is comprised of three parking lots on the west end of campus.  UAB contracts with the Frist Transit to provide a shuttle from the lots to areas along 6th Avenue South and University Boulevard.  The remote system is open Monday - Friday, 5:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m., including certain UAB Holidays.  

For more information on the bus route click the 'Blazer Express' link on the top of the page.

How It Works
The system is designed to run multiple buses throughout the day to accommodate the waiting times in the schedule.  At peak, five buses are on the routes.  With so many vehicles and a downtown environment, things can sometimes go wrong.  If traffic becomes an issue, the buses are redirected to 6th Avenue South and will continue to run in this direction until the traffic issue is resolved.  If you experience any issues with the system, please contact Frist Transit at 205-934-3513 or use the form to the left.

When The University Is Closed
When Blazer Express is not running, free parking is available in the 6th Avenue parking deck.  For university closings when Blazer Express is operating, employees are to use the remote system.
