Transportation Services

Summer Transportation

Transportation Services will be evaluating the service levels during the summer, and will make a determination in June if the service will continue beyond the end of June. 

At this time we do not have any service during the week, please check out the Sustainable Transportation webpage for a list of alternative methods to get around campus and to travel through the city during the summer.

Winter & Extreme Weather Policy

During extreme weather conditions or winter weather Transportation Services may need to close due to road conditions. In the event UMass Lowell is closed due to weather, Transportation Services will also be closed. In the event that weather conditions impact shuttle service during the night or weekends, shuttle service may be closed. An announcement will be made on social media, as as well notifying key offices on campus. During extreme weather or snowy condition please call ext. 4-2222 (978-934-2222) to ensure Transportation Services is operating. Keep up with storm information at: www.edu.uml/storm.

Wannalancit Business Center Shuttle Service

We now provide on-call service for Wannalancit Business Center, Monday - Friday, starting at 7:30 a.m. by calling 978-934-2222. 

The Purple Line shuttle will be sent to pick up on Suffolk Street, and will bring riders to East Campus (between the CRC and Fox Hall) or to Tsongas Center. When on East riders can walk to North or to University Suites and take as shuttle to North, or they can go to the Fox Hall bus stop and pick up the Red Line to get to South.

  RoadsterRoutes

Transportation Services and the Web Services Office in University Relations have been working together to develop a GPS site to allow Students and UMass Lowell community members to see where are shuttles are. We are excited to announce the latest version of RoadsterRoutes! As we continue to work on the development, of the program we are also asking for your feedback. Please let us know what you think of the new site. 

Transportation Advisory

We can only pick students up at designated bus stop locations. For the safety of students and drivers, once the bus pulls away from the bus stop, it will not stop to pick up students. Please use caution during the winter, specifically at night, when melting snow may re-freeze causing some locations to become slippery.

If you have any further questions or comments, please email: transportation_services@uml.edu or call the Transportation Services Office at: 978-934-2222, or on campus at ext. 42222.

School closing information is posted on the University homepage.
