Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is there any hope that BYU will ever let UTA buses come up the ELWC loop to pick up/drop off? I live in Salt Lake and like to take public transit to campus, but I have a heart condition, and the walk to central campus from either stop is very hard for me.

Dear faculty member,

Some options for you are figuring out a way to get to The Ryde busses, which are free with a BYU ID. Here is a map of the bus stations, and it doesn't look like it connects to the BYU Frontrunner station, but it does go to the roundabout next to the Wilkinson center and to the parking lot in front of the MOA.

The other possibility would be to take the Frontrunner down to Provo and then use a ride-share app like Uber or Lyft for the rest of the way to BYU. It looks like it would cost around $10 to get from the Frontrunner station to the loop that is directly in front of the Wilk. I hope you can find something that works for you. It's awesome to have committed faculty members like you.

Best of luck,
