The Campus Circulator service provides daily intercampus transportation for patients, visitors, students, faculty and staff on campus.

Hours of Operation

The Circulator’s hours of operation are 7:00am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday. 
When the campus is closed for major holidays the Campus Circulator will not be running.
Please also see “Snow Days” below for possible service interruptions.
Due to the high volume of customers we assist the Circulator does not run on a specified route. To request a ride on campus please call the Facilities Dispatch Center at 303-724-1777 and specify the following:
  1. Location to be picked up and destination – building and entrance.
  2. Time of pick up.
  3. Number of people needing a ride. (Please note that each cart can carry 5 passengers.)
Please call ahead for transport as the circulator is most likely with other customers and will need time to complete this trip.  Try to allow at least 7-10 minutes for the circulator to arrive from the time you have called.
To provide the best customer service and to continually assist passengers the circulators are not able to be on “wait” or be on “hold” status for long periods of time. Therefore, on average the circulator will wait up to 3 minutes in responding to a call before they will need to move on to the next waiting customers
For safety purposes the circulator carts are not allowed to travel outside of campus grounds and will only travel between designated buildings on campus. 

Inclement Weather

The electric carts do not always perform well in extreme wet, snow or cold.  Therefore, in cold temperatures we will operate vans for the circulator. There are also extreme weather conditions in which the Circulator Service will be temporarily suspended due to safety concerns.  If you have any questions as to whether or not the Circulator is running please call Facilities Dispatch at 303-724-1777.
