Park and Ride Lot / RedHawk Shuttle

IU Northwest expands parking facilities in response to enrollment increase

Today, Friday, Sept. 17, 2010, the Indiana University Northwest Park and Ride lot is being resurfaced and restriped, according to property management officials. The off-campus lot is located at Grant Street and 37th Avenue in the Village Shopping Center.

The work will take place between the Arts on Grant and former Hollywood Video buildings. The paving is expected to be completed today, but it may continue into Monday, Sept. 20.

The paving project will enhance the parking and RedHawk Shuttle experience for all IU Northwest students, faculty and staff.

Individuals using the Park and Ride lot will be asked to park behind the Arts on Grant building, if work is not completed by Monday.

The RedHawk Shuttle and its schedule will not be affected by this work.

Village Property Managers and IU Northwest apologize for any inconvenience.

Due to an increase in student enrollment, IU Northwest expanded its parking facilities in August 2010 to accommodate additional student traffic. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the IU Northwest Park and Ride lot located at the university’s new “Arts on Grant” location. 

Individuals using the Park and Ride lot can ride the free RedHawk Shuttle bus to and from campus. Shuttle departures and arrivals will occur every 10 to 14 minutes with two campus stops: the Moraine Student Center, located just south of the main campus parking lot, adjacent to the Savannah Center, and the south entrance of the Library Conference Center, located on 35th Avenue. Signage indicates the designated drop-off points.

The RedHawk Shuttle runs 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session. All riders are required to present a university ID to board the shuttle. There is on-site security at the Park and Ride lot during its hours of operation, and the campus police department patrols the lot as part of its regular rounds.
