PTC STOP CHANGES - The PTC Shuttle stop at Greenfield Avenue near the Greenfield Bridge has been eliminated due to traffic safety concerns. The PTC Shuttle will stop en route to the PTC at Winterburn Avenue at Alger Street and Winterburn and Greenfield Avenue to accommodate riders travelling to the PTC that previously utilized the eliminated Greenfield Avenue stop. Returning from the PTC the Shuttle will stop at Greenfield and Winterburn Avenue and on Ronald Street near Greenfield Avenue to accommodate riders utilizing the previous Greenfield Avenue stop.


NEW TRACKING SYSTEM - The Graduate Student Assembly, Student Senate, and the Office of Campus Affairs have collaborated with the University Police Department to implement a new campus shuttle and escort tracking service for riders.  The service, provided by Ride Systems, enables users to track campus shuttle and escort locations at  The website offers a map to view the shuttles and escorts moving in real time, bus arrival time estimates for each stop, and updates from the University Police Department. Riders can track shuttles on all available routes--A, B, AB, Bakery Square (long), Bakery Square (short), and PTC--and on all escort color zone routes.

In addition to the website, riders are able to access this information from the Ride Systems iPhone or Android app. For riders without a smartphone, "andysbuses" with the stop number can be texted to the number 41411 for bus arrival time estimates (e.g., "andysbuses5" for the next arrival time at stop number 5).


CMU Shuttle Service: The Carnegie Mellon shuttle service is a fixed-route, fixed-stop transporation option which is available to all CMU students, faculty, and staff. Shuttle buses are assigned to different geographical areas which surround Carnegie Mellon. Presently, there are shuttle services to the Oakland and Shadyside areas. The Shadyside service extends to Shady Avenue and is an option for affiliates wishing to visit the East Liberty business, restaurant, and shopping area. The night time "C" Squirrel Hill shuttle has been discontinued due to lack of significant ridership and has been replaced by an additional Squirrel Hill escort.

We also provide daily, roundtrip service from campus to Bakery Square (Google headquarters) and the Pittsburgh Technology Center. The Bakery Square shuttle operates ten hours a day on weekdays. The PTC shuttle operates 16 hours a day during the week and ten hours a day during the weekend. Effective August 6, 2012, the PTC will traverse Greenfield Avenue to provide a transporation option to campus for CMU affiliates who reside in the Greenfield area.

Please refer to the Shuttle/Escort Policies page for a complete explanation of all policies and rules governing the operation and use of the shuttle services.

CMU Escort Service: The CMU escort service is a transportation option that services the geographical areas surrounding Carnegie Mellon that include Squirrel Hill, Shadyside, and Oakland. This is an evening and night time service that operates from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. The mission of the escort service is to get CMU community members home safely by transporting them to the intersection nearest their residence. Service is limited to a 1.5 mile radius of the main campus. The escort service is to be utilized exclusively as a means to get to one's residence. It is not available as a transportation option to get to campus or other locations.

Please refer to the shuttle/escort policies page for a complete explanation of all policies and rules governing the operation and use of the escort services.


Any riders who live within a designated shuttle route, must use the shuttles while they are in operation. 

If an escort driver determines that an escort rider lives within close proximity to a shuttle route, the driver will instruct the rider to utilize the appropriate shuttle route.
