Shuttle Suggestions/Reporting

Shuttle Transportation
on Campus

WCU Shuttles are free to WCU students, faculty, and staff and are a quick and easy way to travel around campus, West Chester Borough, or to the Exton Train Station.

An accessible bus containing a wheelchair lift is available for mobility-impaired students. Details on how to access this service is available on the Accessible Transportation webpage.

**Students using the shuttle service should be advised that it is impossible to provide timely transportation between North and South Campus within the standard 10-minute class break. Therefore, students should plan and develop class schedules that allow time to be transported between the two locations through the use of open class periods.**

On Campus Shuttles:

The University provides shuttle service between North and South Campus during the fall and spring semesters as well as limited service during the winter and summer sessions. The Gold Route runs daily from 7:15 a.m. - 2:15 a.m. on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. - 2:15 a.m.  on weekends (during fall and spring semesters). 

Off Campus Shuttles:
