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.

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)
