The UMCP Department of Transportation Services (Shuttle-UM) commuter bus route will re-locate to a new end terminus at the West Diamond Avenue MTA Park-and-Ride, in Gaithersburg. That route will be named the #141 Gaithersburg Park & Ride route. The Diamond Avenue MTA Lot terminus will be the only place to board the #141 commuter bus to College Park. These buses will continue to be available to all USM students and staff, regardless of USG affiliation.
UMCP students who are only taking one class at USG may have chosen not to exchange their UMCP photo ID for a USG photo ID. If you don’t have a USG photo ID card and wish to use the charter bus from USG to UMCP, you must see your Program Director to obtain USG charter bus privileges. Your Program Director will contact John Brandt (Security & Transportation) to confirm your enrollment at USG. Once you’re approved, Security will issue you a USG Charter sticker for placement on your UMCP ID. This ID sticker will allow you to board USG-UMCP charter buses using your UMCP photo ID card. The USG-UMCP Charter buses continue to depart USG from at the current bus stop location and will still go to the Stamp Union at UMCP.
