The Shuttle History

The Panther Shuttle was proposed by the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG) in the Fall of 1996. The trial run of the Shuttle was well received by the community, but it was limited to two and a half months in the fall of 1997 and spring 1998. The shuttle has returned for both Fall and Spring semesters in each of the last six years.

The Panther Shuttle is designed to increase transportation convenience and reduce parking problems for university students. The service is free to students, faculty, and staff. It is funded in part by NISG, student activity fees, Public Safety/Parking Division, the Department of Residence and the other area supporters.
