Yale Transportation Options

Nighttime Campus Shuttle Schedule

We are happy to announce a new nighttime shuttle service at the School of Medicine beginning on Monday June 30th that will service addresses south of Elm St. and go east, west, and south to our current boundaries in the Dwight/Howe and Wooster Square neighborhoods. People needing rides to the Prospect and East Rock neighborhoods should continue to use the Blue and Orange Lines.

Between 6PM and 1AM every day we will run a “to door” service originating from 333 Cedar Street every half hour. At the start of the hour the driver will first drop off to the Wooster Square neighborhood and then to the Dwight/Howe area.

Every half hour, the vehicle will leave 333 Cedar Street and go to the Dwight/Howe neighborhood first and then to the Wooster Square neighborhood. 

If you live in the boundary and want a ride in, please call 203-432-6330 and a ride will be scheduled to coincide with the vehicle making the runs. The ideal times to call are right before the vehicle departs.
