Project managers Carlo DiBernardo and Sara Stienecker announced the launch of “SCÜP” pilot program, a new free shuttle service open to students from USC to the Los Angeles International Airport. Aiming to increase sustainability, safety and savings, the program will operate for 17 days for the rest of the semester, beginning with the upcoming Fall Recess between Oct. 13 to Oct. 14. Buses in operation will be leased through Gold Coast transit.
SCÜP will lease 18 bus rides on Wednesday from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., and nine rides on Thursday from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. Each bus can accommodate up to 55 students and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis through the online signup forum. All buses are fully accessible by those with mobility devices and will accommodate wheelchairs, scooters and other devices up to 30 inches wide, 48 inches long and up to 600 pounds.
