Transportation Options University of Maryland Shuttle (Shuttle-UM)
Destinations include Greenbelt, Baltimore, Adelphi, Silver Spring, Hyattsville, New Carrollton, Prince George’s Plaza, Columbia, Gaithersburg, various neighborhoods in and around College Park, etc. including the College Park Metro station – basically any place where the University holds classes.

Sign up for the 12-month pass by going to City Hall or to the Greenbelt Aquatic Center. The cost is $10 for a pass that starts in September (the beginning of the academic year) and runs for 12 months. The $10 pass is only available through the City of Greenbelt. Be sure to take proof of residency with you.
Schedules and Stops: See the website for these at www.transportation.umd.edu and click on the NextBus button at the top of the page. There is also a free booklet, “Campus Connections”, available at the Regents Drive Garage office, that has this information in print.
Free Pass for Seniors and Students: If you are 60 or older, you can take classes free of charge at any state school, including the University of Maryland. Once you’re signed up as a student, you can ride the shuttle for free by showing your student ID.
How useful is this? Once you get to the shuttle stop of choice, you can utilize other public transportation. For example, if you take the shuttle to Baltimore, you disembark at the shuttle stop and then utilize any of the city’s transportation options (bus, light rail, etc.) to get where you want to go: shopping, museums, sporting events, the JHU medical center, etc. Be sure to check the availability of the shuttle for your return trip; some routes have limited times when they operate during the day, on weekends and around school vacation times. Orioles or Ravens games, anyone?
