Alternate Schedule and no service

CART prides itself on operating year-round public transportation service in Norman. However, certain periods necessitate an Alternate Schedule or not operating at all. Since some routes are primarily utilized by OU students, CART conserves resources during instances of Alternate Schedule by operating as efficiently as possible. All but three of the CART fixed routes remain the same during Alternate Schedule.

Routes that operate the same year-round, during Regular Schedule and Alternate Schedule: Main Street (10); Lindsey East (11); Lindsey West (12); West Norman Link (20); Alameda/East Norman (21); Sooner Express (24); Apartment Loop (32); Social Security (44); Campus Corner (45).
 
Routes with different service during Regular and Alternate Schedule:

    • Lloyd Noble Center (LNC) Shuttle (40)— combines with Research Route (42) into LNC/Research Route (43) during Alternate Schedule.
    • Campus Loop (52) — no service during Alternate Schedule.
    • Late-Night Flex — operates at 9:05 p.m. only Monday through Friday.

Football shuttle

CART does not operate on OU home football game days because traffic congestion on those days makes providing quality transportation on a timely schedule impossible. To help alleviate parking congestion on OU home football game days, shuttle service is provided from Lloyd Noble Center to a stop near the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. 

The shuttles begin three hours before each game (four hours before homecoming). Shuttles from the LNC continue until one hour after the game or until the line of fans has dispersed.  

Inclement weather

When snow and ice make road conditions dangerous, CART service could be affected. Tune into local television stations, visit CART on Facebook or @CARTNorman on Twitter for service changes. CART will continue service as long as conditions are safe.
