Our number one priority is providing streamlined, effective transportation around campus, and we are proud to share the following information about our services.
- Students responding to the 2014 Transportation Survey reported 90% satisfaction when interacting or receiving service from Parking and Shuttle Services staff.
- 1.36 million rides were provided to students, faculty and staff on campus shuttles during the 2013-2014 academic year increasing from 1.1 million riders during the 2011-2012 academic year.
- Our GPS map, Shuttle Watch, provides real-time tracking of our shuttles and is accessible from most mobile devices and any internet connection. 253,324 hits were received during the 2013-2014 academic year.
- Since 2010, 15 of the 20 campus shuttle buses are new expanding capacity by approximately 200 students. The new buses have double doors which allows for faster boarding and de-boarding resulting in more efficient service. This also reduces our carbon footprint and increases the reliability of service.

winter breaks, Rapid Ride is the only route and operates 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
