Shuttle Service Suspended Indefinitely due to Coronavirus outbreak

Effective Thursday, March 19, Old Ivy Shuttle service will be suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak. Updates will be communicated on our website and Twitter @UVAUTS.

Parking and Transportation is piloting a free van shuttle to connect the Old Ivy Rd. corridor to Central Grounds and UVA Health. The Old Ivy Shuttle is an option for employees on Old Ivy Rd. to get to meetings on Grounds, while also providing transportation for visitors to UVA HR and other departments along Old Ivy Rd.

How do I ride?

The shuttle is free to ride and available to everyone. UVA ID is not required. Simply arrive at a stop and either board or wait for a van.

For the pilot program, the shuttle uses Safe Ride vans like in the photo below.

When does it run?

The shuttle runs 7:50 AM to 5:50 PM, Monday through Friday. It runs every 20 minutes on the following hourly timetable:

Old Ivy Rd. to Central Grounds and UVA Health

bus time table

UVA Health and Central Grounds to Old Ivy Rd.

For example, if you work at 2420 Old Ivy Rd. and have a meeting at Newcomb Hall at 10:00 AM, you would catch the shuttle outside your office departing at 9:30 AM. This will bring you to the Ruffner Hall stop by 9:40 AM, leaving you plenty of time to walk to your meeting. To return, catch the shuttle across Emmet St. at UVA Bookstore.

If you work at the Hospital and have an HR appointment at 2:30 PM, you would catch the shuttle at Lane Rd. departing at 2:10 PM. This will bring you to 2420 Old Ivy Rd. by 2:25 PM.

*If no passengers request to get off at 2405 Ivy Rd., this stop may be skipped. 2405 Ivy Rd. is always serviced after leaving 2420 Old Ivy Rd. to pick up any passengers heading to Grounds or UVA Health.

Where does it take me?

The shuttle stops at:

  • 2420 Old Ivy Rd.
  • 2405 Ivy Rd.
  • Central Grounds @ Ruffner Hall
  • UVA Health @ Lane Rd.
  • Central Grounds @ UVA Bookstore

Drivers can only pick up and drop off at these designated stops. As a courtesy, please let your driver know which stop you want.

Can I ride if I have a mobility impairment?

UVA faculty, staff, and students with disabilities can use DART, an on-demand, fare-free, curb-to-curb para-transportation service, instead of the Old Ivy Shuttle. DART requires an application submitted to EOCR prior to use.
