Homewood-Peabody-JHMI Shuttle schedule updated, effective Sept. 30

To better serve riders and connect Johns Hopkins locations, a few changes will be implemented with the Homewood-Peabody-JHMI Shuttle schedule that goes into effect on Thursday, Sept. 30. The schedule can be found online at

Among the changes:

• Late-night departures have been added on Thursday and Friday. From JHMI, the last departure is now 1:40 a.m. From Homewood, the last service is now 2:05 a.m. Riders should see the schedule for other late-night departure times.

• Saturday service has been extended, with final departures at 1:30 a.m. from JHMI and 2 a.m. from Homewood.

• Sunday service has been altered and expanded, with final departures at 11:30 p.m. from JHMI and midnight from Homewood. On Sundays, no buses run during the 6 p.m. hour.

• Monday through Friday evening departures from JHMI have been added at 6:20 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Greg Smith, director of Parking and Transportation, said that every effort was made to schedule shuttle buses every five, 10 or 15 minutes as demand patterns warrant. “We do expect, however, that many buses will be near or at capacity during peak times despite the increased service,” he said.

Smith said that the changes were made to support his office’s goal of providing safe, efficient, reliable transportation to connect JHU locations. Feedback, he said, can be sent to
