Rider Alert - SMU Express (768) and Museum Express (743) Route Detour -

Due to construction related street closures on campus, effective Thursday, June 11 the SMU Express (768) and Museum Express (743) shuttles will not service stops located on Bishop Blvd. Riders who normally use stops located on Bishop Blvd. should instead use the stop located next to the southwest corner of the Moody Parking Center at the corner of Binkley Avenue and Airline Road Google Map Location

Although the shuttles will attempt to operate on their regular schedule some delays and disruptions due to construction related street closures can be expected and riders should adjust their schedules accordingly. This detour is expected to remain in effect until August 2015 when through traffic is restored on Binkley Avenue and Bishop Blvd.

We apologize for any inconveniences. Please contact the SMU Parking and ID Card Services Office at parking@smu.edu or 214-768-7275 for additional information or assistance.
