UT Shuttles

UT students, faculty and staff ride all Capital Metro services for free when they swipe their valid IDs. The shuttle system is open to the general public, but non-students pay a Local fare.

The shuttles provide an easy and cost effective way for students, faculty, staff and visitors to access the UT campus. Our High-Frequency Network comes at least Every 15 minutes, 7 days a week. And 6 of those routes directly serve the UT campus (Routes 7, 10, 18, 20, 801 & 803).

Update (3/25/2020): With the shift of classes online amid the current public health crisis, UT Shuttle service will not operate while the shelter-in-place order is in effect. UT Shuttle riders should use the Trip Planner online and on the CapMetro App to find alternative bus service. Also, please check back at CapMetro.org/COVID19 for continuing updates regarding our service.
