- For the next two weeks (July 20-24 and July 27-31) there is a large group which needs to go back and forth to Lakeside, so we are swapping the small white shuttles for full size yellow buses. What this means is that we will NOT be using the Aiken Turnaround and will be using the Maple St bus stop (where the Spinner Shuttle normally picks up). Same schedule, bigger bus. We will have signs out at both locations to remind. (NOTE...THIS HAS BEEN EXTENDED FOR AN ADDITIONAL WEEK UNTIL JULY 7TH)
- ALL parking permits for Fall 2015 will be available to order on August 3rd. Remember that a new permit is needed each semester, so everyone will need to order a Fall 2015 permit. Also keep in mind that you can register up to two vehicles under the same permit, you will just need to swap the sticker anytime you use the other car. When you receive the parking permit, dont forget to remove any old stickers.
- CCM construction is nearing completion...woo hoo...and what that means is that for Fall 2015, both shuttles are moving locations. The Lakeside Shuttle will pull into the CCM Promenade and alight right in front of the cool glass entry. The Spinner Shuttle will move down the hill slightly on Maple St to the wooden bus shelter location. That way you will be able to sit inside the lounge area and see the shuttles arrive out of those amazingly large picture windows, without freezing your toes on the sidewalk!
Don't forget to take out one of the free ChampRides bikes, cruise with us on the ChampRidersCruise every thursday, or check out the awesome services and programs available to you from CATMA.

Thursday, February 5th
Perry Hall Presentation Room
Join staff, faculty and students to discuss equipment and techniques for safe and enjoyable winter walking (and running). Beginners and seasoned walkers welcome (bring your boots and equipment along). We realize that its late in the winter season, but on Feb 2nd, Phil may say there is six more weeks of winter, so why not be prepared!
We will be joined by the pro's from Outdoor Gear Exchange who will provide us with expert advice and will have samples of shoes & traction equipment (such as Yak Trax) to compare and evaluate. At least one lucky attendee will 'walk away' with a new pair of traction equipment too, just for showing up! Snacks and drinks will be provided. No RSVP needed, just turn up on the day.
Please post the attached poster at your office, on your social media, newsletters and calendars (higher resolution can be provided on request).
