Warrior Express Offers an Efficient Way to Get Around Campus

The Warrior Express is a free electric shuttle service offered at CSU Stanislaus for students to more efficiently get around campus after regular business hours. Currently, the shuttles are available Monday through Friday from 6-11 p.m, which excludes non-instructional days and recognized holidays.

Students, faculty and staff in need of a shuttle need to simply text your location to (209) 277-8940 or call (209) 667-3114 to notify them of your location.

One student officer who works for the University Police Department (UPD) shared why they think this is a useful resource for students to take advantage of. 

“I feel like it is – one, because it’s free, and then two, it does get you from one place to another,” the officer stated. “So instead of probably walking like 10 minutes from one side to other we can drive you there in probably like 5 minutes.” 

To better reach those interested in riding with the shuttle service, the student officer suggests keeping an eye out for the Warrior Express signs that are located across campus that list the specific stop number, along with other shuttle service information.

The student officer also pointed out that the Warrior Express is not intended to be ordered to a location ahead of time, as it is an on-call service that picks people up as they call or text.

“If I’m sitting here and then someone calls me from stop 2…and once I get there, if I don’t see you there, I can’t just be waiting there because there’s other people.”

Students across campus seem to have mixed collective knowledge and experience regarding the Warrior Express. 

Gabriel Bravo (senior, Business Administration) has heard of the Warrior Express, and he has yet to try out the service. 

“Like in the night classes, I feel like sometimes it’s not as safe and it’s really useful, if you like to park outside of the campus or something,” he said of the service being useful. 

Victoria Dato (freshman, Psychology) didn’t know much about the Warrior Express. She shared that she prefers walking as her primary form of getting across campus.

“I still think it’s a great resource for those who aren’t as able-bodied,” she said. 

Edna Belelieh (junior, Liberal Studies) and Kelly Ziya (senior, Child Development) have used the Warrior Express at least ten times before, and they also believe that it is a useful resource. 

“I park off campus so it at least gets me to the parking lot and then I walk to my car,” said Belelieh.
