    • Policy is that if you have parked in a parking lot or your destination is on a shuttle route during normal shuttle operation hours (4:30am to 12:15am Monday - Friday for the Main Campus Blue Shuttle) then you should take the bus to your destination.
    • From 8pm to 12:15 am, you can go to the shuttle drop-off/pick-up site outside the Heart Center and ask any shuttle to drop you off at your car in a KUMC designated parking lot within the Blue Shuttle route.
    • Questions regarding shuttle service should directed to KU Parking Services at 913-588-5175 or use the link for more information.


  • Escorts to locations off-campus are handled from 5pm to 7am Monday - Friday, and 24 hours a day on holidays and weekends. If your destination is a parking lot or KUMC building and it is after normal shuttle operation hours, an escort may also be requested.
    • To request a police escort, contact police dispatch at (913-588-5030); make sure to specify that you are asking for a security escort when making the request and to let dispatch know your current location and your destination.
    • In order to expedite the serve, the KU Hospital main entrance and Health Education Building (HEB) have been designated as the main escort pickup and dropoff points.
    • Requests for escorts outside the established boundaries and times are granted upon a supervisor's approval.
