Tired of walking in this kind of weather? Carrying too much to class? Check out Cavalier Connection, the new transit system on campus.
UVa-Wise is pleased to announce that in collaboration with MEOC Transit we have developed Cavalier Connection. Cavalier Connection is in the pilot stage now. It will run from 7:05 a.m. to 6:05 p.m. starting tomorrow January 10, 2018 and is available to students, faculty and staff.
Wed. 01/10/2018 – Fri. 01/12/2018 will be free for all students and Faculty/Staff.
After that you must buy a ride card from the bookstore. The cards cost $10 (Student or Faculty/Staff ID required) and provide you with 20 rides. That is just $.50 per ride.
The route runs as follows:
