Free Thanksgiving break airport shuttle offered for UI students

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa Student Government says free transportation to and from the Eastern Iowa Airport will be available to the school's students this upcoming Thanksgiving break.

The shuttle will run on November 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26. Specific departure times can be found on the university's website.

Students are encouraged to bring their student ID and meet at the Iowa Memorial Union 15 minutes ahead of their departure time, and are allowed one checked bag and one carry-on bag.

“For a lot of students, transportation to and from the airport becomes a burden” said Kyle Sheer, UISG Director of Student Services. “We want to simplify the process for them and allow them to focus on flying to and from their destination safely."

Similar shuttles are also planned for winter, spring and summer break.
