PACKTransit

Campus Escort has partnered with Parking and Transportation Services to provide students with PACKTransit Campus Shuttle Services. This service runs on two routes, the BLUEline and the SILVERline. The BLUEline services the outside perimeter of campus. It will transport students who are on the north parking area to the south-end of campus. The SILVERline will be servicing the east side of campus. It will provide express service to transport students to and from the off-campus housing in the north to Fleischmann Agriculture in the south.

General Guidelines

Campus Escort will not travel farther than the three-mile boundary from the perimeter of the main campus. Students who wish to use this service must provide their WolfCard upon entering Campus Escort Vehicle. Riders have several ways of catching a ride. Students can call Campus Escort at (775) 742-6808. Students can also download the Nevada Campus Escort app, or students can get on one of the many stops, as it is not necessary to request a ride.

If for weather or safety reasons the service needs to be stopped, the messages on the Campus Escort online request and the Campus Escort phone will be updated accordingly.

All passengers must abide by the Student Code of Conduct.
