Cold weather schedule

UD Transportation Services has announced a temporary change to its nighttime schedule during very cold weather, with the North-South Express arriving at stops every 15 minutes.

Volunteers will be on hand at Dumpster Detour donation drop-off sites to assist in collection at the following times:

  • Thursday, May 17: 2-5 p.m.
  • Friday, May 18: 2-5 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 19: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Monday, May 21: 2-5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, May 22: 2-5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, May 23: Noon-10 p.m.

Donations will be delivered to the UDon’t Need It? campaign, which donates goods to local charities and families in need. The campaign keeps tons of materials from landfills annually while offering students a way to give back to the community.

This project is being coordinated with the assistance of S4E, and is funded by a grant from the UD Sustainability Fund.

The UD Sustainability Fund relies wholly on the contributions of the staff, students, and alumni, and recognizes innovative efforts to reduce UD’s carbon footprint.  To learn more about the fund or to donate, visit the Sustainability Task Force website.
