Let College Shuttles pick you up in front of University Terrace or Plaza Hall on Fridays and take you to the Baltimore or Washington D.C areas. College Shuttles is the most convenient college transportation option for University of Maryland Eastern Shore students, making it possible for students to travel home for a weekend. In addition to making reservations for a weekend trip, groups of friends and campus organizations can take day trips to locations of their choice. It’s always a great time traveling with friends while meeting students from other colleges. Using the Hawk card students can make a reservation at the Hawk center or on the UMES website.
