While the Easton/College Hill Escarpment Hike-Bike Trail is under construction, there are alternate transportation options connecting College Hill and Downtown Easton.
Minor clearing work will start on Aug. 22 and signage will be placed saying that the actual trail and steps will close on Aug. 29. Barricades will then be placed prohibiting access to allow for a safe construction zone. Regarding access to downtown, there are the following options in place:
• There is an LCAT Shuttle dedicated to the Arts Campus. It runs weekdays from 8:32 a.m. to 10 p.m. except for Friday when it stops at 4:45pm. MORE
• The College also has a deal with Lanta Bus where students can use it for free with College ID. The 214 Lanta Bus Route runs up and down College avenue approximately every hour. Pickup is under/near 22 overpass and there are stops at every block along Cattell Street. It starts at 6:05 a.m. and stops at 10:29 p.m. MORE
• The Arts Campus is within walking distance from the west side of campus along Sullivan Road past the tennis courts and on the east side of campus on the sidewalk along College Avenue. This is also the suggested route during heavy snow when the Third Street steps are closed.
