“The shuttle will have one stop on Lubbock Street near the Commons and one at City Hall. The shuttle will make three rounds per hour and will service each stop approximately every 20 minutes. The first leave time from campus will be at 9:00 a.m. and the last leave time from City Hall to return to campus will be 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted (on the schedule above),” states the TAMU Transportation Services website. 

In an interview with students at the early voting bus stop, students shared that “[t]here’s a lot of people on campus that don’t have transportation, having access to the shuttle service is extremely beneficial.” The student also noted that they “hope people are taking advantage of the shuttle to go and vote especially since students won’t have to worry about where to go or how to get there.”

Another student chimed in and said that “it was frustrating to see the MSC be taken away as an early voting location. Given that we (students) live in College Station the majority of the year, it is important that we are able to have our voices heard.”

TAMU and the City of College Station have announced that they plan to reinstate the MSC an early voting location for the coming years.

“On-campus Election Day voting will take place Tuesday, Nov. 8 in the Memorial Student Center (MSC), Room 2406 (2nd floor) from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For additional information about voting in Brazos County, visit brazosvotes.org” (Transportation Services).
