Off-Campus Shuttle Bus Service

 

Route Information

 

In an effort to better serve the campus community, Towson University operates several off-campus shuttle routes.  A valid TU One Card must be presented to the driver in order to ride the off-campus shuttles.  Individuals who are unable to provide their valid OneCard will not be allowed to board the bus. No exceptions.

If you have lost your OneCard, you can obtain a new one at the Auxiliary Services Business Office located on the first floor of the University Union.

The shuttle service has been expanded to include the locations listed below.  Towson University community members living in apartments or residential areas near the stops may ride the shuttle. Stops are located at MTA bus stops, unless otherwise stated.

Late Evening Shuttle Service

There are two on-demand shuttles that depart campus at 10:15 p.m. Monday – Friday.  One shuttle combines the Kenilworth and Timonium routes, while the other combines the Rodgers Forge and Goucher routes.  These shuttles do not run fixed routes but rather take the most direct route to reach the stops requested by those riding this last shuttle.  Once you board the shuttle, simply tell the driver which stop you need to go. Please note that only established stops will be serviced, and a valid TU One Card is required to ride these shuttles.

After 10 p.m., shuttle departure times and locations are as follows:

 

Kenilworth/Timonium

  • 10:05 p.m.- University Union (lower level bus slip)
