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: 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.
