UGA Bus Service


 

About 6 million passenger trips are operated by the UGA bus service each year.

Riding the bus is one of the best ways to get around campus. The system carries a greater volume of passengers than any other University transit system in the United States. Campus Transit provides bus and para-transit services to the UGA campus. Weekday, night, and weekend routes are available to all UGA community members. Keeping track of the next available bus is easy through UGA’s mobile app available on Apple and Android devices and at routes.uga.edu.

Anyone with a valid UGA ID can also ride Athens Transit for free. 

UGA bus routes are subject to change based on campus need. Live track the bus on the UGA App or on routes.uga.edu for the most accurate information. Limited bus service is provided during university holidays, Maymester, and Summer sessions. Regular UGA bus service does not run during home football games or when the university is closed.


Lost and found is located at the Auxiliary Services One Stop Shop, located at Tate Plaza. Call (706) 542-9565.
