Parking & Transportation

RamRide

‌RamRide is a shuttle service for faculty, staff and students that helps you travel safely and conveniently to, from and around VCU's campuses. RamRide routes travel to our remote parking facilities and connect the Monroe Park Campus with the MCV Campus.

Buses run four routes year-round. The Campus Connector travels from the Monroe Park Campus to the MCV Campus. The I Lot route goes throughout the MCV Campus, including Sanger Hall and Coliseum Deck, and the A Lot route travels between the A Lot parking facilities and Sanger Hall.  The M and R Lot routes travel to and from the M and R Lots and Sanger Hall.

RamRide buses operate daily, and service is free for all VCU students, faculty and staff with a valid VCUCard. You can view the days/times of operation below. While RamRide does not have a set schedule, you are able track the status of each shuttle and estimated arrival times by downloading the VCU TransLoc mobile app, also available on VCU Mobile.
