uGO December Update

Tis the season…for holiday schedule changes! Read on to discover out how RTA is getting into the spirit of the season with their holiday trains. This time of year, we know it’s easy to be distracted during your commute – by holiday plans, festive lights, or figuring out what’s for dinner – but please be aware of pedestrians. With shorter hours of daylight, winter is the most dangerous time for pedestrian safety. This month’s newsletter includes information on Project Yield and what you can do to help raise awareness of pedestrian safety in our neighborhood. From the team behind uGO, we wish you and yours a joyful, restful, and safe holiday season!
University Circle Employee Transportation Survey

We received over 3,000 responses to our University Circle employee transportation survey. We'll be crunching numbers throughout December. Stay tuned for survey results and raffle prize drawings in January 2021. Thanks to everyone who participated!
RTA Holiday Train - Spread the Cheer!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! RTA decorated two Red Line rail cars and one rail car on the Blue and Green lines with festive decorations. If you find yourself aboard one of RTA's holiday trains, take a picture of yourself with the train, tag us @uGOcircle and use RTA's #holidaytrains on social media and we will send you a uGO transit pass holder and water bottle.
Project Yield Aims to Raise Awareness of Pedestrian Safety Issues in University Circle

After a series of roadway incidents involving pedestrians in University Circle last winter, UCI is pushing for greater public awareness around road safety. Winter months are especially important as there are fewer hours of daylight, and safety risks for pedestrians increases at night.

Participate by signing up for University Circle's pedestrian safety advisory meetings, reporting streetlight outages in your area, displaying a pedestrian friendly bumper sticker on your car or reporting close call roadway incidents. For more information, visit UCI's Project Yield web page.
Winter Service Changes for University Circle Shuttles
Shuttle riders are encouraged to use the TransLoc app for real-time shuttle information and service alerts. Masks are required while waiting for and while riding University Circle shuttles. No University Circle shuttles operate on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Visit the uGO shuttle page for more information and contact 216-791-6226 with any questions.
