Status of UM shuttle

UM Shuttle Town Halls

Apr. 29, 2019

Dear UMB Community,

I want to alert you to possible significant changes to our UM shuttle service. As most of you know, the UM shuttle was brought to our campus in 2012 through a partnership with the University of Maryland, College Park, which operates the service. Over time, the UM shuttle has become increasingly costly and difficult to maintain.

Recently, our partners in College Park informed us that we cannot continue with our current service beyond summer 2019. So, looking ahead to fall and beyond, we are exploring other transportation options that might best serve our students and employees who live in nearby Baltimore communities.

Here are some upcoming meetings:

April 22 and April 29: UMB Town Halls on Shuttle Replacement
Join the discussion on replacement options for the UM shuttle and learn: 
• what the recent data analysis of shuttle usage shows;
• how UMB is responding to your concerns regarding maintaining a shuttle service;
• what the future holds as the University works to respond to the transportation needs of students, staff, and faculty.
April 22
4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
School of Dentistry, Room G310
April 29
11 a.m. to noon
SMC Campus Center, Room 208 (Elm Ballroom A)
Stay tuned for more information regarding remote access.
