On-demand service will be enacted in the evenings, where students can call to request a shuttle. The service is offered Saturdays as well.

The on-demand service stops also include Walmart, Winn-Dixie and Rouses on Tchoupitoulas Street. and Whole Foods on Magazine Street. However, other locations are available upon request, according to the email.
