The shuttle is free to anyone who needs a ride anywhere on the regular campus shuttle routes.
If a person with disabilities prefers to not ride the Campus Shuttle, they can make arrangements for a special DART pickup to take them to any location on campus at no charge. (To be taken anywhere off campus, there is a $1.00 charge each way.)
For a special DART pickup, call 796-8675 at least 2 hours prior to needed pickup time.
The campus shuttle runs from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, during the fall and spring semesters. Shuttle runs only on days classes are scheduled.
The route is the same every day.

- Allied Health Building
- West Campus Community Center

The campus shuttle will run continuous loops, each taking approximately 18 to 20 minutes. The shuttle loop may take longer during busy traffic hours or inclement weather.

Students cannot request that the campus DART shuttle take them off campus or destinations beyond the designated stops. However, there are other DART shuttles run by the City of Big Rapids that operate daily. DART can be contacted to provide transportation to local stores, restaurants, etc. at 231-796-8675.
