Shuttle Routes

UNC Asheville operates two campus shuttle routes during the academic year, the red and blue routes, taking students around campus and to nearby locations. After hours, the university offers an evening shuttle to off-campus locations for students, including nearby grocery and drug stores. Shuttles on a designated route are identifiable by a colored block affixed to the front or side of the vehicle.

Regular campus shuttle routes operate Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. until 5:15 p.m. Evening shuttle service runs from 5:30/5:40 p.m. until 9:30/9:40 p.m Sunday-Thursday (Red and Blue).

Note: Short service delays are possible from 12:15 p.m. through 12:25 p.m. on weekdays during driver shift changes.

Evening RED/BLUE Extended Routes

Great news! We have finalized our fixed-route evening service. No need to call campus police and wait for a ride. Our evening routes should reduce wait-times, provide a more reliable service, and reduce fossil-fuel consumption. Each route loop will take aproximately 20 minutes to complete. Evening routes run Sunday through Thursday.

Red Evening Route resumes Service at 5:40pm and runs until 9:40pm. The Blue Evening Routes resumes service at 5:30 and runs until 9:30pm.
