Parking and transportation updates for spring/summer 2022
The dedicated Ilitch School shuttle will be discontinued as of May 3, 2022. Those traveling between main campus and the Ilitch School are asked instead to take advantage of the new university-subsidized Dart and MoGo passes, which are free to all enrolled students, as well as full- and part-time employees. To request a Dart eligibility code* or to sign up for an annual MoGo pass, please visit the WSU Parking and Transportation Services website.
*Dart eligibility codes are semester-specific. Spring/summer codes will be available at go.wayne.edu/waynerides-request beginning May 3.
Free alternatives to the shuttle
There are a number of options for traveling between main campus and the Ilitch School:
- The QLINE picks up at Woodward and Ferry (a 5-minute walk from Parking Structure 1) and drops off at Woodward and Sprout (outside the Ilitch School). It runs every 15-20 minutes.
- The DDOT-4 (Woodward) bus picks up at Woodward and Palmer (a 4-minute walk from Parking Structure 1) and drops off at Woodward and Temple (directly in front of the Ilitch School). It runs every 20 minutes.
- The DDOT-16 (Dexter) bus picks up at Cass and Kirby (a 4-minute walk from Parking Structure 1) and drops off at Cass and Ledyard (a 6-minute walk from the Ilitch School). It runs every 20 minutes.
- There are seven MoGo stations on or immediately adjacent to campus—including at Cass and Gilmour Mall (a 2-minute walk from Parking Structure 1) and immediately outside the Ilitch School.
WSU students, faculty and staff can use Google Maps or the Moovit or Transit app to find out which option is fastest at a given moment. Warriors who are new to transit could consider traveling with a classmate or colleague who has ridden before or one of our campus Transportation Ambassadors. They can be reached at email@example.com.
