    • B1 and D6 would be two desirable places for pick-up based on employee feedback. 
    • Snite museum, Corby Hall and the Main Circle would be a desirable drop off for some employees.
    • There was a feeling that the noon shuttle should also be expanded to cover more people.
    • Winter months will see the biggest demand for the shuttle, based on employee feedback.
