New Miner Metro Shuttles Have Soft Summer Launch

UTEP’s Parking and Transportation Services conducted a soft launch of its new Miner Metro Shuttle service on June 12, 2017.

PTS purchased 21 buses of three sizes that will accommodate from 17 to 36 passengers. All are equipped with seat belts, air conditioning and can serve ADA passengers.

Each white shuttle—built in 2016 and 2017—is marked with the new design brand of three vertical orange bars at a slight angle. The artwork represents an abstract “M” for “Miners” and each orange bar mimics the acronym “MMS” for “Miner Metro Shuttle.”

The full shuttle fleet will hit the streets in fall 2017.

“The initial feedback has been positive,” said Ruben Chavira, Parking and Transportation Services director. “The students seem pleased.”
