MIDDLEBURY SHUTTLE

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

 Introducing the Middlebury Shuttle

The Department of Operations is pleased to announce a new transportation service for faculty, staff, and students. The “Middlebury Shuttle” is a pilot program now available to facilitate transportation to and from departments that have recently moved off campus. The shuttle is available between campus and Marble Works and 700 Exchange St., and by request to Painter House or 5 Court Street.

Starting at the Adirondack Circle and ending at Marble Works, the shuttle is a white Middlebury College seven-passenger minivan with signs on both sides and the back that say “shuttle.” The shuttle parks as closely as it can to the entrance of each building for pickup/drop-off, waiting four minutes at each stop before departing. Hours of operation are Monday–Friday, from 7:45 a.m. to 5:40 p.m., beginning Monday, November 3, 2014. The schedule for the pickup/drop-off locations can be found at http://www.middlebury.edu/media/view/487140/original/shuttle_schedule.pdf.

In the event the shuttle is not at the pickup location at the time expected, you are welcome to call 443-5472, option 2, the Facilities Customer Service Desk, and a customer service coordinator will make radio contact with the shuttle to determine the ETA (estimated time of arrival).

This pilot program will provide service, while the College is open, unless it is determined that the ridership does not support it, at which time it will be canceled.

KeySurvey LogoThe following information is pertinent only for individuals having a Key Survey account used to create, distribute, and work with surveys and response data.

Message text (excerpt) from WorldAPP’s Customer Care team, dated 10/21/14:

New updates for Form.com Mobile v4.0 and Key Survey Mobile v4.0 are now available for download.

What’s New: This latest software update provides enhanced ability to capture data from your mobile device while offline and offers improved data synchronization technology with a faster automatic data upload frequency rate when online – now, every 5 minutes.

Before downloading the update, please be informed that:

• Legacy versions of the Form.com Mobile and Key Survey Mobile apps will continue to operate, however, we highly recommend installing the latest update to receive the best possible performance.
• We advise performing a final synchronization request to ensure all data is uploaded to the server. Failure to do this could result in data loss.
• If you are still working from the WorldAPP Offline branded mobile app, it is recommended that you install the new mobile app (Form.com Mobile for Form.com accounts, Key Survey Mobile for Key Survey accounts), as WorldAPP Offline will no longer be supported. Follow these 4 simple steps for a smooth transition to the new app.

As always, WorldAPP’s support staff can assist with questions you may have.
