News in Brief: BRC Express
A new express shuttle route service to the BioScience Research Collaborative began on March 2. The bus runs every weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., approximately every 10 minutes. The shuttle that currently stops at the BRC also continues into the Texas Medical Center will continue to run every half hour. The express shuttle route aims to help researchers and students reach labs and classrooms more quickly. The shuttle travels along half of the inner loop, remaining on the side closer to the BRC.
