When boarding the shuttle, you may be asked to show a Penn State ID card, and the shuttle driver may verify that you are eligible to ride.

Seats on the shuttle are limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis. Students not able to be accommodated on the shuttle after all seats are allocated may need to take Uber or a cab to campus. There is no charge for the shuttle.
