BTC Offers New Bus Service to Campuses

Blackhawk Technical College is initiating a full day student bus service for the upcoming school year that will link all four of its sites with BTC’s Central Campus.


A two-bus fleet will transport students to and from the Beloit Center, Monroe Campus, the Center for Transportation Studies in Janesville and the new Advanced Manufacturing Center in Milton with routes that will run Monday through Friday starting at 5:30 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m.


“We are starting this service because of its critical need for students with the support of BTC’s Student Government Association and the Student Activity Fee Allocation Committee,” said Edward Robinson, BTC’s Vice President of Student Services. “The student groups have demonstrated their willingness to help fund the bus system through student fees, which speaks to their commitment to helping their fellow students.”


The BTC bus service will not alter the public bus transportation schedule that currently serves the Beloit Center and the Central Campus each weekday between 6:15 a.m. and 5:40 p.m.


The bus system will provide stops at and service from the Beloit Center, 50 Eclipse Center, Beloit; Monroe Campus, 210 4th Ave., Monroe; the Center for Transportation Studies,  1740 Hwy. 14 West, Janesville; and the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, 15 Plumb St., Milton.
