Shuttles for Breaks

Bucknell University offers students shuttles for all university breaks including the beginning and end of semesters.

One-way Trip Destinations & Prices

The shuttle fee, which reserves your seat and space for one suitcase and one carry-on bag, is charged to your student B-bill account. Prices get incrementally higher the closer you reserve to the shuttle date, so reserve a seat as soon as you're able.

Pick up at Bucknell:

  • The shuttle will pick up departing students at Smith Parking Lot. Driver and staff are present to check student’s information prior to boarding the bus. Keep in mind that the bus may be really full as students often depart with multiple pieces of luggage. Students will NOT be refunded for missing the bus. Please plan to arrive 15–20 minutes prior to the departure time for boarding.
  • Last shuttles are available until a day after finals every semester.
