Shuttle Services

Bearcats Transportation System

The Bearcat Transportation System provides free shuttle service for UC students, faculty and staff with 16 shuttles covering 13 routes.

The shuttle routes operate at various times during the academic terms and connect UC's Uptown Campus with the nearby neighborhood, Blue Ash Campus and Victory Parkway Campus.

  • Shuttles DO NOT OPERATE on academic term breaks, on official UC holidays, or Winter Season Days (except where noted) or when hazardous driving conditions exist. Please check TRANSLOC for up-to-date announcements.

Starting Tuesday January 17th hours will change on the following routes:

·  North 6am-10:30pm    

·  North Express 7am-9pm
