Riding the RDU Shuttle

Once tickets are purchased, using the RDU Shuttle is a pretty simple process. Please keep in mind ECU Transit’s Rider Policies when using the shuttle. There are a few additional things you can do to help your trip go smoothly:

  • Arrive a few minutes early to your pick-up location when possible.
  • Bring a valid student photo ID; the shuttle operator will need them for verification. Keep these items handy in a backpack, purse, or other carry on bag in case of a problem with your luggage.
  • Store your luggage in the vehicle securely where it is unlikely to shift around.

While at RDU, the shuttle is not permitted to sit at any location longer than five minutes. Help us comply with this requirement by boarding and exiting quickly. The operator may need to make multiple passes through RDU to accommodate all riders.
