Madison College Shuttles

Currently enrolled degree-credit students at Madison College are eligible to ride the shuttles, which serve the Commercial Avenue, Downtown, Truax, West and South Campuses. Additionally there are two new stops in South Madison and Fitchburg. To ride the shuttles, you must present your Madison College OneCard as you board. Nondegree students may also ride the shuttle if they buy the Student Activities/Commuter Services/Health and Fitness Package, which costs $75 a semester.

The shuttles operate Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. when classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters, including final exam weeks. Shuttles DO NOT operate during the summer months. All shuttles are wheelchair accessible and equipped with bike racks.

The shuttle service is funded by the Commuter Services Fee. Service enhancements are piloted for Fall 2016. If services are not utilized, they will end or be modified after December 2016. You can download the schedule (PDF, 203KB).
