On-Campus Transportation

Saint Louis University offers a wide variety of transportation options, including a shuttle service and safe escorts, to help you get around campus.

Due to COVID-19, all shuttle drivers, SLU Ride drivers and passengers are required to wear face masks. Face masks must be properly in place before entering and remain on at all times while within the vehicle. If you do not do not feel well, contact Student or Employee Health to verify if you need to be tested and if quarantining is necessary. If you are moving into isolation housing, you cannot use the shuttles or SLU Ride services to move there nor can you use these services or drive SLU vehicles until cleared by Student or Employee Health.
