American University's shuttle services provide students, faculty, staff, and guests with a convenient means of traveling between campus, the Washington College of Law, and the Tenleytown Metro station.

Halloween (Oct 31) Shuttle Update

On Saturday October 31, 2015 the Kogod Bus stop will be closed from 5:30 PM (Saturday) to 1 AM (Sunday) due to the MGC tunnel closure. Please use the Ward circle Stop on Nebraska Avenue located across Nebraska Ave. from the Ward Building at the METRO stop or Nebraska Hall Stop across Nebraska Ave. near the Homeland Security entrance.

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.

AU Shuttle Service Semester Schedule

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.

Red Route (WCL-Metro)

White Route runs evenings during Summer Session & Spring/Fall Break ONLY (Main Campus-Metro-WCL Super Loop)
