General information

McGill's inter-campus shuttle service transports students, staff and faculty members between the University's downtown and Macdonald campuses. However, the primary purpose of the service is to transport students who are taking courses on both campuses and for Faculty and Staff who have Administrative or Academic University-related business on both campuses.

Buses run Monday through Friday, and can carry a maximum of 48 seated passengers at a time. Service is on a first-come first-serve basis, and buses can get crowded during the exam period and other busy times. Please plan accordingly.

Please consult these schedules regularly, as they may occasionally be modified. Note that road construction and traffic may create unavoidable delays. To view departure times, choose a shuttle schedule below.

Travel between both campuses is also possible by public transport.
