The 2015-16 printed color campus maps are missing one bus stop near Ridder Arena (Campus Connector and 4th Street Circulator routes). The stop is shown on all electronic files. We apologize for the error.
On Monday, October 19 through the middle of November, the City of Minneapolis will sweep every street from curb to curb.
In early October, look up when your street is scheduled for sweeping.
From 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the day that your street is swept, your car must not be parked on the street or it will be towed. If your car is towed, it will be taken to the City impound lot and you will be charged a fine and towing fees (generally, $200+) to retrieve it.
Approximately 24 hours before your street is to be swept, the city will post temporary "No Parking" signs on the street, but don't wait to see those signs. Look up the schedule online BEFORE October 19 so that you will be prepared to move your car before the day the sweepers arrive on your street.
The City generally sweeps the streets twice each year-- in mid-October for Fall and in mid-April for Spring. Mark these times on your calendar, and check the information on the City's street sweeping web page when the time is near.

Buses will replace trains on Thursday, October 8 at 10 p.m. until 4 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 during a partial shutdown of the METRO Blue and Green lines.
Buses will replace Blue Line trains from Franklin Avenue to Target Field Station and Green Line trains from Stadium Village to Target Field Station.
During the weekend of October 9-12, buses will also replace trains during a partial shutdown on the METRO Green line to allow for scheduled construction and maintenance.
Starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 9 until 3:30 a.m. on Monday, October 12, buses will replace Green Line trains between Capitol/Rice Street and Union Depot stations.
During the disruptions, customers can board replacement buses near each affected station. See maps for boarding locations.
Starting on Thursday, October 1, PTS will begin installation of high-efficiency lighting in the 19th Avenue Ramp.
Work will take place between 6:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and start near the top (not the roof). The project will continue down to the first level and should be completed in October.
Reserved stalls will need to be re-located in the future. More details will be emailed to those specific individuals closer to the actual date when it is known.
Project dates are approximate.
This project will improve University energy conservation efforts while still keeping our customer’s personal safety and security as our number one concern. Motion sensors and daylight-sensing equipment will help direct the lighting in the parking ramp.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking and Transportation Services is monitoring shuttle ridership and making adjustments this week. More buses are added onto the morning route, starting Wednesday, September 16.
We ask for your patience as we fine-tune our new routes.
PTS appreciates customer input and encourages our University community to continue to let us know how we are doing. Email us at email@example.com.
From Monday, September 14 through Friday, October 23, only westbound traffic on Energy Park Drive will be able to cross Raymond Avenue.

Beginning on Monday, August 31 through the end of October, the Washington Avenue Ramp will have construction activities due to the skyway link project located on the east end of level 3.
The skyway link project will create an enclosed skyway from the Transportation & Safety Building to the Commons Hotel through the Washington Avenue Ramp.
The project will permanently eliminate nine parking spaces (including four disability parking spaces). Five new disability parking spaces have already been added north of the east side center stair/elevator tower.
As always, please drive and walk safely especially in construction zones.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Beginning on Monday, July 20, drivers will find the right traffic lane closed on southbound Union Street SE (along the public entrance to the Washington Avenue Ramp). See East Bank map.
This Keller Hall project includes a crane and construction staging materials in that right drive lane. Workers will be removing and replacing brickwork, repairing windows, and changing joints on the facades.
Completion of phase 1 of the project is expected in mid-October.
The Beacon Street contract-only entrance to the Washington Avenue Ramp will remain open and unaffected by this work.
As with all construction projects, this is weather dependent (plans may be delayed or extended if necessary).
