Students taking classes in the evening at Temple University Ambler and Main Campus will have more inter-campus travel options during the fall 2017 semester.
“After months of data gathering and analysis to determine when Temple Ambler students need inter-campus bus service the most, we have realigned the bus schedule to provide the best service for our students,” said Dr. Vicki Lewis McGarvey, Vice Provost for University College and Executive Director of Temple University Ambler. “All changes have been made to correspond with the scheduling needs of Ambler Campus students. The Temple University Facilities Department has been invaluable in working with us to plan out a bus schedule that provides the greatest value to students at the Ambler Campus.”
Beginning fall 2017, the Inter-Campus Bus service from Ambler to Main Campus will run from 9:45 a.m. to 10:10 p.m. and continue to pick up students from the Learning Center and Student Parking Lot (Lot #3). The last bus departing for Main Campus will leave Temple Ambler at 10:10 p.m.
The Inter-Campus Bus service from Main Campus to Ambler Campus will operate from 6:50 a.m. to 11:10 p.m. The last bus departing Main Campus for Ambler will leave 12th and Polett Walk at 11:10 p.m.
“We want to ensure that students have all of the information about the revised inter-campus bus schedule and take these changes into account. Several evening bus service times have been restored to accommodate the most students traveling between campuses,” said Janine Warnas, Director of Academic Advising and Career Development. “We’ve also asked faculty planning classes at Temple Ambler for fall 2017 and beyond to be sure that their course times correspond with the approved Ambler schedule matrix.”
The new Inter-Campus Bus Schedule is as follows:
Inter-Campus Bus from Main Campus to Ambler Campus: 6:50 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 10:50 a.m., 1 p.m., 2:20 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 4:40 p.m., 5:40 p.m., 7 p.m., 9:10 p.m., 11:10 p.m.
Inter-Campus Bus from Ambler Campus to Main Campus: 9:45 a.m., 11 a.m., 11:45 a.m., 1 p.m., 2:05 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 6 p.m., 8:10 p.m., 10:10 p.m.
The Shuttle Bus service between the Ambler Campus and the Ambler Train Station will remain unchanged. The last bus leaving Ambler Campus for the Ambler Train Station will be at 10:15 p.m. (except on Fridays when the last run will be at 4:40 p.m.).

“The revisions to the Inter-Campus Bus schedule have been made entirely to provide the greatest convenience for our Temple Ambler students traveling between Ambler and Main campuses,” Warnas said. “We hope that students who need to adjust their class schedules or need assistance planning out their fall semester schedule will visit with their academic advisor to develop a course and travel plan that works best for them.”
