Whereas, this information on the route times and operations can be found at parking.utk.edu but this information is nowhere to be found physically on any poster or boards near the bus stops, and

Be it hereby resolved, that the Parking and Transit services of the University of Tennessee attach material outlining the specific T Bus route and operation times for each specific bus stop, as well as information promoting the Rider app.
