The University of Colorado at Boulder is making preparations to accommodate the approximately 10,000 students, faculty and staff who use Regional Transportation District bus service in the event of a vote to strike by transit workers on Sunday night.

In the event of a strike, some buses serving the campus will continue to operate and others will not. Special parking and shuttle arrangements will be made. All pertinent information and a map are posted on the CU-Boulder Parking and Transportation Services' Web site at

In the event of a strike, Parking and Transportation Services will provide information at (303) 492-7384 -- press one for RTD strike information. Information also will be made available in a recorded message on the CU-Boulder public information line at (303) 492-5500.

Information from RTD will be posted at or available by calling (303) 299-6000.

Parking on campus is limited and there is no way to accommodate all of the extra vehicles if everyone were to drive in the event of a strike, transportation officials said. Suggested alternatives are provided on the Parking and Transportation Services' Web site.

CU-Boulder held its spring break the week of March 27-31 and campus offices will be closed on Friday, March 31. Classes will resume on Monday, April 3.
