PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

Shuttle Services

Towson University runs shuttle routes both

on-campus and off-campus to serve campus visitors and the general campus community. While on campus, community members should plan to park their vehicle in a designated lot and use the shuttle to access other locations on campus.

In addition to the para-transit service, the front seats of each campus shuttle bus are reserved for individuals with disabilities.

*Note- Shuttle services do not operate when there are no scheduled classes.

Late Evening Off Campus 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 on fixed routes but rather take the most direct route to reach the stops requested by those riding this last shuttle.  Simply tell the driver which stop you need to go when you board the shuttle.  Please note that only established stops will be serviced and that a valid 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)
  • 10:15 p.m.- Towsontown Garage bus shelter

 

Rodgers Forge/Goucher

  • 10:10 p.m.- College of Liberal Arts bus shelter
  • 10:15 p.m.- College of Fine Arts bus shelter

 

Summer Semester & Academic Year Breaks Alternative Options

Campus shuttles will have an abbreviated schedule during scheduled classes for Winter and Summer Sessions. Campus shuttles will not be in operation when no classes are scheduled or when the university is closed for a holiday or inclement weather. When campus shuttles operate on an abbreviated schedule during the summer or over breaks, Parking & Transportation Services offers other options which include: utilizing the Alternative Transportation Program, purchasing a prorated annual permit, or purchasing a daily, weekly, or monthly permit (NO REFUNDS).

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, the primary concern is the safety of the campus community.  Shuttles will not operate if the university is closed due to inclement weather.  If the university opens late, every effort will be made to start operating shuttles one hour prior to the announced late opening time.  If the university closes early, shuttles will operate for up to one hour after the official closing time, provided it remains safe to do so.  If department management determines it is unsafe to operate shuttles, service will be discontinued whether or not the university is open.

Please monitor Nextbus.com for notifications about shuttle service during inclement weather.

Advertising on Bus Shelters

A portion of the bus shelters located on the campus allow for advertising by outside organizations.  If you are interested in advertising opportunities on these bus shelters, please contact MSSmedia at 800-988-7657 or ads@MSSmedia.com
