RT 4735 arrives at the MU Terminal All of Unitrans' vintage London Transport double deck buses run from the MU Terminal on the E Line and F Line*. See the Unitrans website and bus schedule for more information on when double decks are in service. Note that double decks don't always run when the schedule says they will due to possible unforseen mechanical problems and regular maintainence work. Double decks are not wheelchair accessible, but all other Unitrans buses are.
* Due to lower ridership, the Modern Double Decker buses have been moved off of the B Line and G Line, and are now servicing the J Line and the V Line at the Silo Terminal.

Before the bus terminal and the North Entry Parking Structure existed, an expanse of grass extended from Hickey Gym west and north. The westward area was utilized for archery practice, as evidenced by this Eastman's Originals Collection photo from 1957.
A redesign of the MU Terminal is planned for Summer 2014
