Bus Service Schedules

Drexel provides free shuttle bus service for students, faculty and staff across its three Philadelphia campuses

dragon shuttle

Drexel University provides shuttle bus transportation across the University City, Center City and Queen Lane campuses. 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 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.
