Shuttles

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 (Red Only), Monday-Thursday (Red and Blue).
