The South Side Shuttle

Duquesne Shuttle Bus
The Duquesne Shuttle Bus

Beginning this school year, the University is offering a FREE shuttle service between Campus and South Side for Duquesne students. Students will only be required to show their official Duquesne University I.D. to gain access to the Shuttle. Only Duquesne University Students may ride the South Side Shuttle.

Shuttle Operations follow the Academic calendar. There is NO Service on weekends, during breaks, the Summer Semester or holidays. The Shuttle will operate from 7am through 10pm, Monday through Friday during the University's Academic calendar and ending each semester on the last day of Finals.

Shuttle Bus

The South Side Shuttle Service is a convenient, safe, and inexpensive way to get to campus for students living on the South Side. You would not have to worry about finding a parking space when you return home, digging your car out in the winter or wasting gas.

 

Parking Guidelines

The University is supportive of the City of Pittsburgh's Mobility Collective and the intent of sustainable, safe transportation. The City's recent pilot program for electric scooters is certain to provide opportunities that may benefit the region, when their use is restricted within safe and appropriate parameters. For example, nearby bike trails adjacent to Duquesne University's campus might be an appropriate and safe venue for the electric scooters.

However, the University has serious concerns about the use of electric scooters on its campus. Duquesne often experiences dense pedestrian traffic, and the campus terrain includes steep inclines. As a result, Duquesne has for several years expressly prohibited scooters from campus under the Student Code of Conduct (except those used as a mobility accommodation under that Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)). In addition, Duquesne University has active concerns that the City's pilot program electric scooters are being left in pedestrian pathways, ramps, doorways and other areas that are potentially unsafe and could negatively impact accessibility.

For safety, accessibility, and other reasons, Duquesne prohibits the use of all electric scooters on campus, including those under the City's pilot program, unless as an approved ADA accommodation.

Duquesne is working with the City to designate campus as a No Ride Zone for the City's electric scooters, to geo-fence campus as a No Ride Zone (meaning that electric scooters will not operate on the University's property), and to effectively communicate these limitations to scooter riders.

ADA parking is available throughout the university. Duquesne University is a private institution that provides reasonable accommodations for anyone that requires ADA parking on the property. Duquesne University requires either a state issued ADA placard with a university issued temporary permit or an official Duquesne University issued permanent ADA hangtag to park outside of the Forbes and Locust parking garages. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in a parking citation. To park in an ADA space inside the Forbes and Locust garages, an individual must possess a state issued placard.
