SEEC Bus Route Changes

Beginning, Monday, August 27, RTD’s Monday-through-Friday Stampede bus route will no longer serve the Marine Street area of East Campus, and will instead run on a constant loop between SEEC and the UMC. Service frequency will be every 10 minutes from 7 am to 5:30 pm and every 15 minutes from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Frequency around the class start times of 9 am, 10 am, 2 pm, and 3 pm will increase to every 5 minutes. The Discovery Express bus service will cease service on Friday, August 24.

Located on the University of Colorado’s East Campus in Boulder, the university’s Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) brings together more than a dozen programs and industry partners under one roof. SEEC is home to some of the best minds in environmental and sustainability research at CU and in federal labs.

A new, LEED-certified building houses shared labs featuring a new generation of analytical instruments and synthesis capabilities not available elsewhere on CU’s campus. An adjoining 290,000 square-foot space has been refurbished for teaching, programs, collaborative work, and community connections. The complex is designed to generate interaction and collaboration, fostering chance encounters that can generate sparks of discovery.
