Transportation and Parking
The Project tries to provide a quality experience for volunteers, while also respecting both the environment as well as the residents of our partner neighborhoods. We hope that all our volunteers will make every effort to carpool, ride our provided buses, or take public transportation to and from Dove Springs to decrease our environmental and residential impact. We provide some transportation to and from the UT campus, and encourage the majority of our volunteers to carpool to Dove Springs to check in and continue on to the work sites.
Shuttle buses will be available all day on a LIMITED basis for volunteers who would like to ride. Bus pick-up and drop-off will be at the UT campus, Student Services Building (100 W. Dean Keeton St). Bus sign-up is included in the volunteer registration form, and is FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE.
Shift 1 pickup at the SSB: please arrive by 7:30am; buses will leave as they fill
Shift 2 pickup at the SSB: please arrive by 10:30am; buses will leave as they fill
Volunteers are welcome to drive to The Project headquarters to check in, and then to their sites. Carpooling is encouraged! Parking is limited throughout Dove Springs, and we ask that you please respect the neighborhood residents and allow for their parking needs first. Volunteers who drive will go to Project headquarters at Mendez Middle School to check in and attend the volunteer welcome, and from there will head to assigned work sites.
Capitol Metro Bus #7 travels from campus, directly to Consuelo Mendez Middle School. Routes and times can be found on the Capital Metro website, and we encourage the use of public transportation! It’s free with your UT ID!
