The University of Utah is moving ahead with plans to put an electric shuttle bus on campus.
A prototype of the shuttle will begin running from campus housing to the main campus in the fall, said Alma Allred, director of commuter services. It will charge at the South Campus TRAX station at 1790 E. South Campus Drive.
Meanwhile, officials are planning to extend the shuttle's route with a new road between the business school parking lot and student union parking lot. That project is expected to begin construction in late 2014.
