The Office of Parking and Transportation is pleased to announce the expansion of the Howard University shuttle service, which includes new and improved routes and a revised schedule to better serve the University community. During the summer, Howard Parking and Transportation and Reston Limousine worked together with the students, faculty and staff to revise shuttle schedules to best serve our campus community’s transportation needs.
Visit our website at http://auxiliary.howard.edu/parking-policies.html to review the changes and revisions to the various shuttle routes. In an effort to increase efficiency, a number of routes have been revised to include central hubs for pick-up. These hubs will cut down on travel time, help improve our carbon footprint, and allow for extended route times. To that end, a number of stops have been eliminated to accomplish this goal. In doing so, we are also excited to announce Columbia Heights as a part of the schedule revisions. Listed below are a few of the HU Shuttle Service benefits that our modifications will support:
- Improved reliability on days of operation
- Increased frequency
- Increased efficiency of transit service
- Increased opportunities to utilize transit services
- Improved mobility in support of healthy living (walking, biking, etc.)
- Decreased carbon footprint
- Decreased travel time to main campus
- Extended hours for the Law School route
The new shuttle schedules will begin August 17, 2015. If you have any questions, please call the Parking and Transportation Department at 202-806-2000.
