Service Support

The ACaPS Office strives to facilitate a reliable shuttle service for the Illinois Tech community. At times, unforeseen occurrences such as traffic, construction or inclement weather delays may impact the timeliness of scheduled routes. We are currently exploring enhanced communication methods such as self-service mobile tracking, as well as intermediate methods of alerts and evaluating associated resources required for delivery. We will keep our shuttle community engaged with developments. In the meantime, please contact support as follows.
