University Transit Service - Fall 2021

Fall 2021 routes begin on Monday, August 16th, 2021 with reduced frequencies and operational times. Check the TransLoc Rider app or TransLoc online for live schedule information.

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.

Carry a Mask – You Will Need One for All Public Transit

In accordance with University policy and CDC guidance, all passengers on public transportation (including University Transit System / UTS, Charlottesville Area Transit like the free trolley and route 7 bus, and Jaunt) are required to wear face masks regardless of vaccination status. UTS bus routes and capacity remain modified in Fall 2021, though capacity is higher than the 2020-21 academic year. Plan to walk or bike for short trips and allow extra time for travel.

Go the distance for social distancing!

UTS encourages everyone who does not need to ride the bus to walk, bike, or scoot to get to work or class.

Real-Time Bus Tracking

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.

Service Levels

UTS operates at different service levels throughout the year depending on the academic calendar, clinic holidays, university holidays, and event impacts. Please use our Operating Status page for updates during times of inclement weather.
