GENERAL INFORMATION AND FAQS
Service for the spring 2013 semester starts Tuesday, January 22.
The Collegetown Shuttle is a free transportation service for students, staff, and faculty at seven participating schools in the Baltimore region. No farecards, tickets, or special cards to ride the shuttle - simply use your college/university ID card to board the bus to visit a friend, get to an internship, or explore Baltimore's finest hotspots.
The Baltimore Collegetown Shuttle goes to seven schools - Goucher College, Towson University, Loyola University Maryland, Notre Dame of Maryland University, Johns Hopkins University (Homewood Campus), Maryland Institute College of Art, and Morgan State University. In addition to the seven schools, we stop at Towson Town Center, Penn Station, and Towson Place Shopping Center.
We purchased Nextbus technology which will allow riders to track the shuttle on the web or on their smartphone. While the online schedule provides approximate times for the shuttle's arrival, Next Bus tells riders exactly when the shuttle will arrive.

The Collegetown Shuttle is comprised of two routes – blue and red. The blue route starts at Goucher and ends at Penn Station, while the red route goes from Towson University, moves eastward to Morgan, then goes to Penn Station.
You are allowed to bring up to two guests on the Baltimore Collegetown Shuttle for free! The driver will swipe your ID once for you and for each guest you bring on the shuttle.
Need to get downtown? At Penn Station, transfer to the Charm City Circulator, a free bus service that serves the downtown area seven days of the week.

Go to Towson Place Every Day
Shopping days at Target and Wal-Mart are no longer a Sunday excursion! Jump on the red route and get off at the Towson Place – Prince Rd stop seven days a week!
New green signs at each of the shuttle stops indicate what route you are on and the next stop on the route. In addition, we have clearer signage on the side and front of the buses to identify the Collegetown Shuttle.
On the stops page, you will a find list of places you can visit around each shuttle stop. Destinations range from restaurants to museums to your local coffee shop. If they are hyperlinked, that means we've blogged about our experience there.
