Syracuse University provides free bus service to all students, employees, and guests, linking South Campus with Main Campus. Additionally, there is a limited service to the neighborhoods adjacent to the University. The University contracts with C.N.Y. Centro Inc. to operate 13 shuttle routes, including three “free fare” zones in area neighborhoods. Buses run weekdays from 7 a.m. to 2:50 a.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 2:50 a.m.

The 13 bus lines—Winding Ridge, Slocum Heights, South Campus, Manley, North Campus, Sadler/Brewster-Boland, East Campus, Vincent/Nob Hill, Drumlins, Euclid-Westcott, Quad Shuttle, Connective Corridor, and Carousel Express operate on a set of schedules, which are available at the following locations: Bird Library, Schine Student Center, Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services, Department of Public Safety, Goldstein Student Center, Parking and Transit Services office, and at CENTRO.

The Nob Hill Express route is operated by Caz Limo and operates Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2:50 a.m. and on weekends from 5 p.m. to 2:50 a.m. during the academic year.  Buses are in full operation during the fall and spring semesters.
