The shuttle will leave from Funger Hall every 40 minutes between noon and 4 p.m. on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, both Saturdays.

The University announced in an email Thursday that a free weekly shuttle between the Foggy Bottom campus and Safeway will begin operations Saturday.

The shuttle will leave from Funger Hall every 40 minutes between noon and 4 p.m. on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, both Saturdays, before pausing for winter break. The shuttle will resume service on Jan. 14 and run each Saturday of the spring semester.

The shuttle follows an announcement from Whole Foods that it will stop accepting GWorld in June 2023.

The University’s website states that Mount Vernon Campus students can use Lyft vouchers for up to $20 of value to Safeway up to three times per month, so long as they are used on Saturdays between noon and 4 p.m. The vouchers will not roll over between months.

At the SA’s biweekly meeting on in mid-September, SA Vice President Yan Xu said he was working with the University to coordinate the shuttles.
