‌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.

COVID-19 Update:

On Thursday, June 11, RamRide will resume normal service in M Lot, R Lot and A Lot with physical distancing measures in place. RamRide buses will operate at fifty percent capacity, accepting between 14 to 16 passengers on each bus, depending on vehicle size. All passengers must wear protective face masks upon boarding, and hand sanitizer will be made available at the front of the bus. Passengers should allow extra time in their commute to account for delays related to reduced occupancy. To reduce the potential spread of infection, guest passes have been suspended until further notice.

We remain committed to providing a safe and responsible transportation service for all VCU and VCU Health System faculty, staff and students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Protecting riders’ health and safety throughout this pandemic is paramount. Accordingly, the following guidelines will be in place to keep critical services functioning and accessible.
