RamRide is a shuttle service that travels to VCU's remote parking facilities. Buses operate Monday through Friday, and service is free for all VCU students, faculty and staff with a valid VCUCard. While RamRide does not have a set schedule, passengers can track the status of each shuttle and estimated arrival times by downloading the VCU Ride Systems mobile app, also available on VCU Mobile. For transportation service between VCU's campuses, visit our GRTC page.
Note: Starting Dec. 19, users can track RamRide using the Ride Pingo app.

VCU Parking and Transportation maintains a separate lost and found inventory via the web application Crowdfind. The Crowdfind system is designed to make it easier for students, staff and visitors in the area to easily search electronic files for a lost item and file a claim for the item at any time from any device, once they are able to positively identify and confirm that the item belongs to them. If you believe you left an item on a RamRide bus, please visit the Lost & Found section for retrieval instructions.
