Parking and Transportation Services

Shuttles

Let us do the driving for you. The COMET is now operating campus transit under a contract with the university. There are 10 daytime routes and two evening routes to make your life easy, and it's all free with your Carolina Card! We have 30 locations across the Columbia campus.

Daytime and Evening Routes

You can catch a bus on each route nearly every 10-30 minutes depending on the route.  For exact times of routes, take advantage of the real time tracking which is available by texting “USCVMPS” and the bus stop ID number on the sign to 41411 to get real time information sent to your phone! Example: uscvmps 1840 in a text message to 41411 or visit here for details.
