New ‘LIMO Express’ Provides Transports on Wisconsin Avenue/Wells Street
Starting at 6 p.m. Friday, March 7, the Department of Public Safety will pilot a special LIMO Express shuttle that provides continuous looping service from Straz Tower Hall on the eastern end of campus to North 22nd Street.
The LIMO Express will travel west on Wisconsin Avenue from North 9th Street to North 22nd Street, north to Wells Street, and then eastbound to the 11th Street “wiggle.” From there, the LIMO Express will travel south to Wisconsin Avenue and then east to the entrance of Straz Tower Hall.
The white LIMO Express van will run nightly from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m.; a Marquette University ID is required to ride. Based on initial test runs, the Department of Public Safety estimates the entire loop will take approximately 15 minutes.
The LIMO Express van will stop at all street corners to pick up riders. Students should stand at street corners on the north side of Wisconsin Avenue and the south side of Wells Street to wait for the van. Students may also flag down the van mid-block between North 13th and 16th Streets, as pedestrian safety allows.
The new LIMO Express is an additional safety resource offered by the Department of Public Safety and does not replace regular LIMO service, which will continue as usual to provide door-to-door service for any member of the Marquette community.
