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.

All passengers must wear protective face masks upon boarding, and hand sanitizer is available at the front of the bus.
