“UCO students and faculty utilize routes, as they pass several apartment complexes and employment centers frequented by students and faculty,” Entz said.
“In fact, on Saturdays, Routes 1 and 2 are full of students going to grocery stores and shopping.”
Another benefit to the partnership is that students ride the Expresslink from the Edmond campus to Oklahoma City to attend classes at UCO’s Academy of Contemporary Music in Bricktown.
“A significant number of UCO passengers are those without cars, such as international students,” Entz said.
Councilwoman Elizabeth Waner complimented the partnership between the city and the university.
“It is a great partnership,” Waner said. “That speaks well to what we do.”
