Beginning March 2, UVA Parking and Transportation is running a pilot program to offer a shuttle from Grounds to Old Ivy Road and back again. The program will run from March through the end of June, and may be extended if ridership illustrates a need for continued service.
The route runs a 20 minute loop as follows:
- from 2420 Old Ivy Road (HR/Advancement building, next to Ivy Stacks)
- to 2405 Ivy Road (near BellAir Mkt)
- to Bavaro Hall (Emmet St.)
- to Pinn Hall (JPA)
- … and back again.
Parking and Transportation will be monitoring ridership closely, and conducting surveys of riders to determine the level of need. We encourage anyone interested to utilize this service and provide feedback during the pilot.
Please note that anyone wishing to visit the Ivy Stacks Reading Room will need to request an appointment in advance of their visit. The location is not equipped to handle walk-in visitors.
What is Ivy Stacks?
Ivy Stacks is a high-density Library shelving and retrieval facility located one mile west of Alderman Library. It currently holds several million books and other materials from the University of Virginia’s libraries, all of which are available for checkout through VIRGO.
The space also houses a reading room, which is available for students and researchers who request materials and an appointment in advance.
