The OLLI Shuttle is Here!

OLLI Shuttle

After a successful first fundraising initiative in 2013, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) purchased a 14-passenger shuttle bus to transport members on Learning Trips and across campus on class days. 

Three of the University’s Student Admissions Representatives (STARs) – Allen Ghareeb ’14, Holly Alguire ’15, and Joe Waytula ’15 – serve as shuttle drivers on class days.

The shuttle has a wide aisle and step-up entrance for improved accessibility and comfort for OLLI members.  OLLI can now accommodate four more members on each local trip and eliminate the use of one of the university’s 10-passenger vans. 

OLLI’s 2014 annual giving campaign goal is to raise $35,000, which will allow for the purchase of a second shuttle bus so that everyone who takes a local Learning Trip can enjoy a comfortable ride. 

In addition, OLLI plans to use fundraising dollars to provide ongoing maintenance for the shuttle, begin building a reserve for future replacements, continue supporting free Sunday Cinema and OLLI lectures, and invest 5% of total gifts into the OLLI endowment fund.
