Reminder: Charter Buses on Campus

If you have an event where you will be having any number of charter buses on campus, please coordinate their visit with the Parking Services office. Even one charter bus needs to be accommodated for drop-off, pick-up, and parking.

Charter buses should not be advised to pick-up or drop-off at Rappahannock River Lane or the Sandy Creek Transit Center. Both locations are transit hubs, and there is not sufficient space to allow charter bus access.

Parking Services is happy to work with you to find a location and make arrangements; please include them in your event planning process.  They can be reached at or 703-993-2065.

Summer Mason Shuttles Schedules Coming Soon

Faculty/Staff Bike Commuter Choice

Do you live within a few miles of campus and think biking to work could be good for your well-being? All faculty and staff are eligible to participate in the Bike Commuter Choice Program. The program has four tiers of support. The more you ride, the greater the financial incentive.

The introductory tier is just five rides per quarter. Visit this link and select the Faculty/Staff Bike Commuter Choice Program. Questions? Email
