Bus Service Schedules
Drexel University provides transportation across its three campuses - University City Campus, Center City Campus and the Queen Lane Campus. Students, faculty and professional staff are permitted unlimited use of this service at no charge. The bus service includes three fixed routes (Powelton/Spring Garden, Dragon and Queen Lane) and operates Monday through Friday (as well as Saturday and Sunday for Powelton/Spring Garden only).
Upon boarding Drexel’s shuttles, you must present your DragonCard and tap it on the blue card reader at the front of the bus; the card readers provide route utilization statistics that will help identify problems and allow more efficient delivery of shuttle service. As a reminder, drivers may only pick up and drop off at designated bus stops.
