While the Oxford Shuttle currently runs until 10 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, we propose that the bus runs until 2 am on these nights for safety reasons
We, the residents of Oxford Housing, as well as residents in the surrounding neighborhood, are petitioning to make the Oxford Shuttle run until 2 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The main issue that leads to this petition is student safety. During the week, the Oxford Shuttle runs until 2 am, allowing students who are on Central Campus or at the libraries a safe ride home. On Saturdays and Sundays, there is no bus returning to Oxford Housing and the area after 10 pm.
Students often choose to be on Central Campus on the weekends, for both social and academic reasons. Since the beginning of this academic year, there have been 7 crime alerts reported on Central Campus, all occurring at or after 10 pm. Just as well, residents frequently express their concern about taking Geddes, Hill, and S. University Roads from the heart of campus, as these roads are not well-lit.
Overall, to ensure residents' safety, we believe it is necessary for the buses to run until 2 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Expand Oxford Shuttle hours on weekends petition to The University of Michigan was written by Oxford Community Council and is in the category Students' Rights at GoPetition.
