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.

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

Changes to Loch Raven Off-Campus Shuttle Route
To better serve and accommodate the campus community riding the off-campus shuttles, Parking & Transportation Services has implemented changes to the Spring 2014 Loch Raven Route. The following modifications will take effect Monday, January 27, 2014:
The following stops on the Loch Raven Route will be discontinued:
The Goucher Blvd./Prince Rd., Stops #62 and #52 - Those who boarded at the Goucher Blvd. /Prince Rd. stops now need to board at the Putty Hill/Towson Marketplace, Stop #31
Fairmount Ave./Dulaney Valley Rd., Stop #36 - Those who boarded at the Fairmount Ave. /Dulaney Valley Rd. stop now need to board at the Kenilworth Route at Southerly Rd., Stop #35.
The following stops have been added to the Loch Raven Route:
DonnyBrooke Apts., Stop #23
Burke & Hillen Rd., Stop #51
Until further notice, individuals boarding the Goucher Shuttle Route's stops 63, 24, & 25 must now board at the Goucher Blvd. and Colbury Rd. stop due to a damaged water main pipe in the roadway.
NEW-Loch Raven Route off-campus shuttle service will begin effective August 28th. Route will service the following communities: Courthouse Square, Towson Marketplace, Loch Raven Village, and The Quarters. The bus will start and end from the bus slip located outside of the lower entrance to the Union garage.
EXPANDED-Rodgers Forge off-campus shuttle service route has been expanded to provide service to Walker Manor, Drumcastle Apts, Rogers Forge Apts, and 7400 Building. The Rodgers Forge route does not service the Towson Center area.
MODIFIED-Goucher Route off-campus shuttle service stops Courthouse Square, Towson Marketplace, Loch Raven Village, and The Quarters will now be serviced by the Loch Raven Route.
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:
10:05 p.m.- University Union (lower level bus slip)
10:15 p.m.- Towsontown Garage bus shelter
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 Winter Session and the summer. Campus shuttles will not be in operation 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 pro-rated annual permit, or purchasing a weekly or monthly permit (NO REFUNDS).
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.
