On Thursday, September 1, the Academic Center shuttle stop will be unavailable beginning at approximately 9am while Mt. Royal Avenue is closed for a fair.
While Mt. Royal is closed, the shuttle stop will be temporarily relocated to the corner of Maryland and Mt. Royal Avenues, on the Lyric corner. Look for a sign to designate the stop. Alternately, passengers may prefer to exit the bus at the Langsdale Library stop.
