Shuttles and Transportation

We provide a robust system of shuttles to help students, faculty, staff, and visitors navigate quickly travel between University-sponsored parking lots, main campus, local railroad and bus stations, downtown New Haven, and points west of campus on Boston Post Road, including major shopping centers. The University also has additional transportation options for students with the ChargerGo bus pass and ZipCar availability on campus.
