Running on Biodiesel
AU's shuttle buses and other diesel-powered equipment are fueled using a B20 biodiesel blend (20% biofuel, 80% diesel). Biodiesel helps the university save emissions, money, and time spent refueling as the biodiesel tank is right on campus.

We operate three different routes: Red, White, and Blue. For complete schedules and routes, click our links below.
Blue Route (Main Campus-Metro) - Tenleytown Metro Station - Tenley Town Shuttle Stop Location Has Moved
Beginning Saturday, June 7, the American University Blue Line Shuttle bus stop at the Tenley Town Metro station will be relocated about 75 feet north of its current location at the corner of 40th and Albemarle Streets. This move will alleviate the current pedestrian and Metro bus congestion that often occurs at peak ridership periods throughout the day.
