Expanded hours for onCall shuttle service

Quick post today – still advising my students.  An announcement went out today that we are expanding the hours of the onCall on-demand shuttle service.  As we approach turning the clocks back and it gets darker earlier in the evening, this will hopefully be a help to our students.

Reminder – tell your Deacs to check their holds and registration status in WIN before registering!  And if students have issues during registration, there is an online Gmail chat option with the Registrar’s office that is a great resource.  This is what I tell my advisees:

If you have trouble during registration – please use the Registrar’s Gmail chat option at this link: http://registrar.wfu.edu/registration-2/registration-after-hours/.  Academic advisers or staff members don’t have the same permissions in WIN as you do, so we won’t know the answers to most of your registration questions – you’ll get better, faster help from the Registrar’s Gmail chat!


Wake Forest’s onCall late-night van service will expand its operating hours Nov. 6. The van service will begin running at 5:30 p.m. nightly, instead of 10 p.m.  It will continue each night until 7 a.m.

Last September, Wake Forest launched the OnCall service, which is intended for students, faculty and staff.  There is no charge to use it.

Wake Forest’s Parking and Transportation office operates the van service, as well as the University’s shuttle service.  It will operate each fall and spring semester.

To get a ride, call 336-283-1091.

Service areas include the Reynolda Campus, the University Corporate Center freshman parking lot, sophomore parking area (Lot Z2), Deacon Station and surrounding campus neighborhoods located on or near Polo Road, Brookwood Drive, Howell Street, University Parkway and Long Drive.

Beyond the onCall van service, Parking and Transportation offers nightly shuttle service with the Gray Line.  The Gray Line Night Route is on a fixed schedule Sunday – Thursday from 7:30 p.m. – 2:30 a.m.
