Public Transportation

Shuttle Service

  • Begin: 8:00 a.m. End: 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday
  • Hours may fluctuate as class days and times are evaluated (Example: Tuesdays and Thursdays are usually slower days with different class times). After evaluating traffic volume for the first two weeks, shuttles may begin later or end sooner than other days. Appropriate announcements will be made if the schedule is changed.

Two 15-passenger vans will make about seven stops at various campus locations at fifteen to thirty-minute intervals. Shuttles have a basic cycle of stops; however, they will stop for students flagging them down. Shuttles will run in opposite directions to keep the shuttle wait to a minimum and to offset students coming to and leaving campus.



ART (Asheville Redefines Transit) provides bus service throughout the City of Asheville and to the Town of Black Mountain with 16 bus routes running from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
