Live Tracking of Shuttles Now Available via Web and PDAs

The Office of Parking & Transportation Services has initiated an easy and effective way for you to manage your shuttle ride to and around campus. Effective Monday, August 16, 2010, you will be able to track your shuttle bus using either the internet or a pda.

If using the internet, log on to www.howardshuttle.com, check the box for the shuttle you would like. The interactive map will give you the shuttles route, location and the estimated time the shuttle will arrive at a certain stop.

If you are using a pda and would like to know when the next shuttle will arrive at a stop, you would text ‘hushuttle’ and the stop number to 41411. For example, if you are at the Howard University Bookstore which is stop 7. You would text “hushuttle 7” to 41411 you will get a text message of the arrival time. See legend below for stop numbers for locations on campus.
