UNT Shuttle Bus Service

NOTICE: Effective August 2019 – New DCTA/UNT Campus Pick-Up & Drop-Off Locations

Have you ever heard of the saying, “There is no such thing as a free ride”. Well, that’s not the case if you are a student at the University of North Texas and you are interested in using the UNT Shuttle Bus Route Service. If you have a valid student, faculty/staff ID, you may ride the UNT Shuttle and all other Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) Connect bus transit services free. That’s right FREE! So remember, when you are looking for off-campus housing in the Greater Denton area, ask your prospective apartment manager if they are located on one of the several UNT Shuttle Bus Routes or DCTA Connect Routes. This is a great opportunity to save money on gas and campus parking fees, as well as support the green initiative at UNT and the city of Denton.

The UNT Shuttle operates Monday through Friday, with a Campus Circular Service running on Saturday and Sunday during the academic school year, excluding major holidays. Summer shuttle service is offered from late May through mid-August.
