Campus & Port Authority Transportation
Campus Shuttle & Escort Service
The university operates two separate transportation systems for the convenience and safety of students, faculty and staff – the Shuttle Service and the Escort Service. The shuttle service runs two different routes, one which travels through the Oakland area of the city and has multiple stops, and the second which travels to the Pittsburgh Technology Center (PTC) in Hazelwood. A valid Carnegie Mellon ID Card is required in order to use the shuttle services. This service is available to faculty, staff, students and all Affiliate cardholders. For more information regarding the Campus Shuttle and Escort Service please visit the University Police website.
Port Authority Transit (PAT)
Carnegie Mellon ID Cards can be used to gain access to transportation throughout the city on the Port Authority Transit system. This privilege is extended to any benefits-eligible faculty or staff member and to any degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student who pays the PAT fee for the current semester. Eligibility for the PAT program is noted on the front of the ID Card by a white bus icon. Questions regarding PAT access eligibility may be sent to The HUB. Affiliate cardholders are not eligible for the bus pass and The HUB cannot charge Affiliate cardholders an additional fee in order to add this benefit to their ID Card. More information regarding PAT including schedules, can be found Port Authority website.
