A Guide to FAU’s Bus System
If you have ever been to FAU’s campus, you know that driving and parking can be stressful. However, FAU’s Owl Express is here to make parking situation stress-free. The Owl Express is a free on-campus bus shuttle available to all FAU students, faculty, and staff.
FAU currently has two shuttle buses, the red and blue shuttles. Both shuttles circulate around campus and stop at various points so students can park their cars in the morning and won’t have to move them again until they are ready to leave campus. The shuttle bus will also pick up students from both University Village apartments and Innovation Village student apartments.
The FAU mobile app has updated to date time estimates and route information for both the red and blue shuttle bus. The hours of operation vary for each shuttle bus per semester. FAU also offers a shuttle bus for transportation between the Jupiter and Boca Raton campuses. It is free for all students, faculty, and staff. For the complete schedule, click here.
