UNM Shuttle System

COVID-19 Shuttle Rider Guide

To continue UNM’s commitment to safety for all, UNM Parking & Transportation Services (PATS) has implemented guidelines and requirements for customers using the shuttle bus system. VIEW GUIDE 


Designed for rapid and convenient campus travel, PATS’ transportation system is a comprehensive transit network, offered free of charge* to UNM students, staff, faculty, and visitors. We offer multiple bus routes on campus with service to every area of The University including UNM commuter parking lots.

*ACC-Lobo Village is not considered part of the UNM main campus and residents are required to pay a one-time annual non-refundable parking and transportation fee to Lobo Village.
