Blazer Express Starts Rolling (Photos)

UAB has launched the new Blazer Express bus system.

The system consists of six bus routes, color coded for user clarification and convenience, and is free for students, employees, and authorized visitors to use.

The wait time for most routes is between 8-15 minutes. Each bus is wheelchair accessible and most buildings on campus are 5 minutes away from a bus stop.

Detailed information on routes and the Blazer Express can be found at:

With close proximity parking becoming scarcer as the rate of enrollment at UAB continues to rise, hopefully the new bus system will ease stress and anxiety for those who commute to classes, and make UAB an even more readily accessible campus for everyone than ever before.

About Gerrie Lim

Like roughly 75% of UAB's student population, Gerrie Lim was once a Biology major on the pre-med track. However, she realized she was not about that "spend the next 100 years in med school, assuming you get in" kind of life and is now the Bradgelina of all the degrees. She is pursuing a degree in Communications Broadcasting while on the pre-Physician's Assistant track, while bumping her Biology major down to a minor and adopting a Theater minor. Gerrie Lim has spent two years at the glorious institution that is UAB. She is a writer (complainer), photographer (shows-up-to-events-and-takes-pictures-if-not-their-food), and cartoonist (scribbler) for the Kaleidoscope. She can be found in front of her tiny Samsung TV on Saturday nights. You can find her on Instagram as @chopstickgirl and Twitter as @Team_Gerrie. Most importantly though, you can find her on YouTube every Wednesday on her channel, TeamGerrie.
