been providing safe, convenient and enjoyable transportation for JMU Students
for over 10 years during the Thanksgiving
& Winter Breaks. Founded by a JMU alumnus, our service has been extended
to include Homecoming, Spring Break and
other chartered events that require our assistance. Our destinations
are listed here. If you would like
CollegeTransit to consider a new destination, please tell
us about it.
Our premium service allows
you to travel directly from Godwin parking lot on the JMU Campus to one
of a number of strategic drop-off points. Don’t forget to bring a
movie to help pass the time. We leave it to the students to decide
what movies to bring and watch.
*New England students should use our bus to BWI Airport and then connect with
Southwest or JetBlue Airlines

CollegeTransit versus Picking up your student:
Compare the total cost of the trip which requires 4 one way trips in gas, hotel and of course the value of your time against our ticket price.
Other Destinations: Due
to student population & ticket costs, it's not always possible to provide
affordable transportation to all major metro areas. That is why we provide
service to the BWI Airport & Amtrak station. From there you can connect to
the major airline carriers (including Southwest) or take the train the rest of
BWI Flights should be
scheduled 2 hours after scheduled BWI arrival time and 90 minutes before
scheduled BWI departure time.
*CollegeTransit reserves the right to use
smaller 31-passenger coaches or passenger vans on the BWI route for small groups. Note these options will not have a bathroom and has limited luggage space.
