Campus Bus and Accessible Transportation Study

Transportation consultant Nelson Nygaard has completed their study of on-campus accessible transportation and campus bus services. The complete report is available online. No changes to accessible transportation or campus bus services are planned at this time, but Transportation Services will review the recommendations and implement as appropriate in the future.

Campus Bus Routes

The UW Campus Bus is free to all riders. Click on the route number below for schedules and maps. All campus routes are also on the official UW campus map. When riding the campus bus, be sure to remain behind the yellow standee line at the front of the bus for safety. Standing beyond this line obscures the driver's view and can lead to crashes.

Routes 80 and 84 provide daytime service. Service calendar for Routes 80 and 84.

Routes 80, 81, and 82 provide nighttime service. Service calendar for Routes 81 and 82.

Material Transport on Madison Metro Buses

The research and medical functions of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the UW Hospital require that materials sometimes be transported across campus. Madison Metro restricts, and may deny, the transport of any item on its buses. Materials that Metro generally restricts includes, but is not limited to: flammable liquids; dangerous, toxic or poisonous substances; storage batteries; vessels containing caustic materials, chemicals, acids or alkalis; fishing rods which are not broken down or have unsecured or exposed hooks or lures; ski poles unless secured to skis or have tip covers; sheet glass and sharp objects. Metro may also deny transport of any other item that the driver perceives as hazardous. To reduce the likelihood of UW research materials that are not infectious or do not otherwise present a safety threat being rejected for transport on Metro buses, Transportation Services has implemented the Metro Bus Material Tranport Policy.

Please use the Metro Bus Material Tranport Label when transporting such materials.
