Fill-A-Bus graphic A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our Fill-A-Bus a success!

Fill-A-Bus was a partnership between Transportation Services, Intercollegiate Athletics, University Relations/Alumni Association and Dining Services. Ultimately this program yielded a bus load of donated goods for Hurricane Sandy victims in New York and New Jersey.

Watch our video about the last step in the process.

The Department of Transportation Services is one of the largest college transit organizations in the country and we are proud to provide a reward that lives up to the standards of our service and our customers.

This prize is being funded as part of a negotiated backup parking location for the Professional Golfers Association Championship held in Bethesda, Maryland.

We cannot thank our riders enough for supporting our service and we look forward to providing more great service for many years to come!
