The fall 2020 Mason Shuttle schedules are available. Some important changes to the schedules:

  • Please check the schedules carefully as there are service changes – days and times of service and, in some cases, stop changes on the Mason Shuttles routes.
  • The routes that will be running this fall are: Burke VRE, Fairfax/SciTech, Gunston Mason, and Sandy Creek to Metro. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we will not be running the Arlington Pilot, Global to Metro, Gunston George, and the West Campus shuttles.

Other COVID-19 impacts to Mason Shuttles include:

  • Face coverings (or University-approved exception) are required.
  • Shuttle bus capacity reduced to 50% of seats.
  • Fill seats from back to front to reduce passengers passing each other.
  • Maintain a 6 feet distance while waiting, boarding, and departing the shuttle.
  • As in the past, a Mason ID is required to board. We are not accepting visitors on the shuttles until further notice.

Questions? Please contact us at or by phone at 703-993-2828.
