UAB students will have a new transit option to get to and from the area's parking lots starting Monday, July 8.
UAB is introducing a temporary fleet of buses to run those routes until they can launch a new fleet of buses in January.
Blazer Express will be a 24-hour, weekday operation. Riders will be able to use GPS technology to locate buses in real time on their smartphones. TV monitors in high traffic areas will show the buses' location in real time as well.
The fleet will be able to transport as many as 200 people.
