ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

ASU students are taking advantage of a new partnership with the city of Albany.

Since Monday, the new "Ram Rush" buses are shuttling students from both the east and west campuses.  Two buses run simultaneously, starting at 6 in the morning to 8:55 p.m.

ASU Police Chief John Fields said buses have been packed this week.  He said he's glad to know the students are making the most of this new resource. 

He also wanted to remind students he has access to the security cameras on each bus, ensuring students' safety.

"It's a great thing to see a collaboration with the city. I do want to say that," said Chief Fields. "With both campuses, we're able to provide those services for the students. A lot of anxiety that students may have, 'We have two campuses. How are we going to get back and forth?' But if you don't have to drive, don't drive. Get on the bus. That's what they're here for."

Chief Fields reminds students to bring their student IDs with them to swipe when they get on the bus.
