Razorback Transit's Route 22 Is New This Semester
With the coming of a new semester, Razorback Transit has made some adjustments in services as a way to help more passengers.
One of the biggest changes is the addition of Route 22, which will run a route that is north of the main campus, primarily on Leverette Avenue. It is very similar to the old Blue Route. You may see Route 22 and all current Razorback Transit routes in real time at Passio Go!
Adam Waddell, Assistant Director of Transit and Parking and the head of Razorback Transit, said the changes were made to meet the needs of more riders.
"We strive to provide safe, reliable, and efficient service with the resources that we have available," he said. "The recent changes are a result of our ongoing service evaluation and recommendations of Connect Northwest Arkansas' Ten-Year Transit Development Plan update that is a regional project to improve public transit in Northwest Arkansas."

Transit and Parking also has a new sheltered bus stop on Stadium Drive, across from the Adohi residence halls, near the newly completed Lot 77. This stop is serviced by routes 11 and 44.
