Attention riders: Now you can track the Shuttle!
This spring, Rowan University introduces Shuttle Tracker, an app for iPhone and Android devices that enables users to see, in real time, where the campus shuttle is so they can make the most of the shuttle service.
The FREE app, collects data from shuttle-mounted GPS units and displays it on a map so riders can track the vehicles’ locations. The app also features SMS text messaging of location information.

Maps and Shuttle Information
Effective Jan. 19, 2016, Rowan University will run three shuttle routes: Internal, Campus-to-Campus (Glassboro-Camden) and South Jersey Technology Park (SJTP). Shuttle schedules are available and services are free to Rowan students, faculty and staff with valid Rowan ID.
A special express shuttle will drive students between the Chamberlain Student Center and Tech Park starting Sept 1. The shuttle will add a stop at the Ellis Street Lot when it opens on Sept. 9. The shuttle will be available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Please note that the quickest way to access the Ellis Street Remote Lot from Rt. 55 is to take Exit 48 (toward Glassboro). This special shuttle is temporary for the beginning of the semester and is in addition to the normal Rowan Shuttle Services. The University will reassess the special shuttle and determine its future need.
The Internal Shuttle serving the main campus will run from 7:00 a.m. to 1:03 a.m., Monday through Friday, during fall and spring semesters. A second shuttle will run from 7:00 a.m. to 4:23 p.m. to reduce wait times to no more than 20 minutes. This fall, we introduce the express shift for selected stops from 7:00 a.m. to 9:11 a.m. with an average wait time of 10-15 minutes. The evening shuttle (serving all routes) will run from 4:05 p.m. to 1:03 a.m. with an average wait time of 40 minutes.
The Campus-to-Campus (Glassboro-Camden) locations for fall semester are Robinson/James Halls and the Camden Academic Building. This shuttle runs Monday through Thursday from 7:15 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and on Friday from 7:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (except for Glassboro outbound, which runs until 6:00 p.m.).
For service to the SJTP, please catch the Campus-to Campus shuttle at stop #9-Robinson/James Halls. Not all Campus-to-Campus shuttles stop at SJTP. Please review the SJTP shuttle schedule for times and details.
South Jersey Public Transportation
For service away from campus we have partnered with the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA). For $1, riders may take SJTA’s Pureland East-West Community shuttle to/from:
- Avandale Park and Ride in Sicklerville
- Mullica Hill
- Pureland Industrial Complex and points between stops
The SJTA shuttle drops off riders on Main Street near Rowan Boulevard Apartments (Pureland stop #5), one block from Rowan’s Internal Shuttle routes 1 and 19. Visit the Pureland East-West shuttle site for schedules and more information.
The Pureland East-West shuttle also connects with NJTransit routes 313, 316, 400, 401, 402, 408, 410, 412, 459, 463, and 551. Transfers are available between the NJTransit routes and the Pureland East-West shuttle, providing a free or discounted ride.
In addition to meeting our primary purpose of providing a free campus shuttle service, Rowanshuttle offers a special shuttle request service for the summer and for special events on a limited basis. Shuttles are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If your organization or department needs a special shuttle for a local event, you may request one by completing the shuttle request form below. The negotiated rate for the special shuttle is $42.00 per hour plus the driver’s fee. All special shuttle requests must be made seven (7) business days in advance of the date of the event. The shuttle service will make every effort to accommodate requests made less than 7 days prior to the event. However, you may be charged a higher rate for these last-minute requests. As soon as the shuttle is scheduled, it is the event organizer’s responsibility to ensure that attendees are notified of the appropriate locations for pickups and drop-offs. The following shuttles are available for this service:
- A 14-passenger van (not handicapped accessible)
- A 20-passenger bus (handicapped accessible)
- A 26-passenger bus (handicapped accessible)
- A 36-passenger bus (handicapped accessible)
