Carnegie Mellon University

The university offers several transportation options on our Pittsburgh campus. Community members may also use bicycles and other personal wheeled vehicles -- including skateboards, in-line skates, scooters, electric bicycles, Segways and other similar vehicles -- to commute to and around CMU.


CMU’s shuttles run on a fixed route with specific stops, starting as early as 7 a.m. for some routes and running into the evening. View the latest CMU shuttle schedule and routes. The university's shuttles, as well as neighboring University of Pittsburgh's shuttles, are available to faculty, staff and students – just show your CMU ID upon boarding. 

Evening Escort Service

The escort service operates in the evening/overnight and provides free transportation from campus to intersections close to your home for faculty, staff and students that live in the Oakland, Shadyside or Squirrel Hill neighborhoods. Escort buses operate from 6:30 p.m. to 4:15 a.m., cycling every 45 minutes. You must show your CMU ID to board. View the escort bus schedule, pickup locations and zones.
