THE University of the Sunshine Coast has cancelled its free shuttle bus for students from Gympie for today.

This decision was made early this morning when USC was advised that floodwaters had cut the Bruce Hwy at Traveston, south of Gympie.

The highway is expected to remain impassable until tomorrow afternoon at least.

USC will recommence the bus service once the highway is reopened.

In the meantime, alternative transport will be provided for several Cooroy students who usually catch the Gympie shuttle bus.

The University's other free bus services to Noosa, North Lakes and Caboolture will continue as normal, bringing more than 80 students to Sippy Downs each day.

USC introduced these bus services in recent years as one initiative to reduce single-passenger car trips and reduce demand on parking at the University's campus.
