Student/Faculty/Staff Transportation


****7/29/2020 UPDATE****

With more faculty and staff back on campus and students not far behind, shuttle service will resume Monday, Aug. 3, with notable adjustments.  All passengers must wear a face mask and physically distance themselves from others while at the shuttle stop or on the bus.

Shuttles will operate Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Shuttles will run every 10-15 minutes. During the hours of operation, passengers can check on the status of shuttles by clicking on the shuttle icon within the ND Mobile app.

Cardinal Buses and Transportation Services will now partner to provide service, with a combination of Cardinal buses and University-operated vans.  All vehicles will be marked with the ND Campus Shuttle signage.

This fall there will be two shuttle routes:

  • Bulla/Hesburgh Library/Snite Museum Circle: One continuous Cardinal Bus, supplemented by a University-operated van during peak ridership hours of 7:30 to 10 a.m.
  • Bulla Lot to Main Building: Continuous service, with Cardinal bus operating during peak ridership, and a University-operated van during other hours.

Baseball/Joyce Lot to McKenna/Main Circle: This route is discontinued due to low ridership over the course of the past two years.

Please see the detailed maps below.
