Why do I have to park in a Blue lot? Can I park closer to my workplace in a reserved lot?
Due to the limited parking near UVA academic and Medical Center buildings most employees will need to park in a commuter lot. Academic employees should contact the UVA Parking and Transportation Office (434.924.7231). Health System Team Members interested in obtaining a Reserved permit should contact their manager or contact the Health System parking Operations Office at (434) 924-5147 for more information.
With a total area of just over 10 square miles, Charlottesville is an excellent place to live and work without a car. Using an alternative mode (biking, walking, tranist, or carpooling) is not just an environmentally friendly option, it may shorten your commute. Explore the resources on this website to learn more about the various transportation options or email email@example.com .
Last year I had something on a waitlist, can I get it back?

University Transit Service Questions
How often are the UTS buses being cleaned? What steps are being taken to combat COVID-19?
University Transit Service is committed to providing a safe transit experience to our riders and we have taken steps to support this goal. First, we apply disinfecting solution rated to eliminate the COVID-19 virus to all touch surfaces in our operating buses. This process occurs twice daily with buses being disinfected at mid-day and at end-day after returning to the bus lot. Second, we have made disinfectants available to our drivers so that passenger and driver compartments can receive additional disinfection throughout the day. Third, we have installed automatic hand sanitizer dispensers on our buses for public use.
As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus, University Transit Service is continuing to evaluate and improve our disinfection procedures so that we can keep protecting the health of our passengers and our community.
Is a mask required aboard a UTS bus?
Yes, a proper face covering over both your nose and mouth is required to ride University Transit.
What is the maximum capacity for a UTS bus?
20 passengers is the maximum capacity.
Why are the bus routes changed and different?
UTS Routes have been redesigned to emphasize transit from more distant points and to feature McCormick Road as a walking path. Service hours will be changed to allow for proper overnight cleaning of transit buses. View information on all UTS routes and schedules.

I lost an item on a University Transit Bus
The UTS lost and found is located at 1101 Millmont Street. Any items left on a transit bus will remain there until the end of the day. Please call 434-924-7711 and the dispatcher will help you identify the bus or confirm if your item has been brought in.

Does UTS run during inclement weather?
University Transit Service will make every effort to run during winter storms. However, during severe weather, please be prepared for delays, detours, and cancellations.
