Important P&T Information and Updates

UTS is currently running on a Full-Service Academic Schedule and a Full-Service UVA Health Commuter Service

University Transit Service

University Transit Service

University Transit Service (UTS) is a fare-free transit service committed to providing safe, reliable, efficient, and friendly transit service to University of Virginia students, faculty, and staff.

Masks Recommended, Not Required on UVA Buses

Mask use is not required on UVA buses. However, UVA Health still encourages the use of three-ply masks on buses and in other enclosed, confined spaces in alignment with current CDC recommendations. Bus riders are encouraged to open windows (weather permitting). Team members may also wish to consider using N95 or KN95 masks for a higher degree of protection. This change does not impact required mask use by team members, patients, and visitors in all care areas and public spaces within UVA Health facilities. Read more about mask use in UVA Health facilities on Connect

Download the TransLoc Rider app or use TransLoc online to find the nearest bus stop, track your bus in real-time, see arrival time estimates, and receive service impact notifications.
