About TU


Alternative Transportation

Public Transportation

The university strives to provide access to—and encourage the use of—public transportation for all TU faculty, staff, students and visitors.  We pledge to provide public transportation not only within the university’s doors, but also to the community at large.

The university’s on-campus bus and shuttle service provides access to all campus areas seven days a week. Our off-campus shuttle services the apartment complexes along Kennilworth Drive, Knollwood/Burke Ave, and Goucher Boulevard, in addition to the Timonium Park and Ride. Shuttle service to Baltimore Penn Station is also available via a dedicated shuttle. The university's Gold bus route offers access to the University Village apartments.

The campus is home to many public transportation stops. Five MTA bus stops located on or near the university host three bus lines that provide weekday service to the Inner Harbor, University of Maryland Transit Center, Lutherville Light Rail, Fox Ridge and Franklin Square. The 3, 8 and 55 lines are available for a one-way fare of $1.60; a one-day pass can be purchased for $3.50. Riders must use exact change.

Online Trip Planner

The MTA’s new Online Trip Planner will tell you how to get to your destination without a car, including how long you’ll have to walk before you get to the nearest bus stop or train station. Just type in where you are and where you want to go to receive options for walking, driving or taking public transportation.

Collegetown Shuttle

The Collegetown Shuttle provides complimentary service from Towson to local shopping areas, colleges and universities.  The shuttle is available to students, faculty and staff members with valid TU identification.  It services the Union Garage and Center for the Arts bus stops on Cross Campus drive from 3:14 p.m. Friday to 8:10 p.m. Sunday.
