New Blue Jay Shuttle begins Homewood routes today

The Homewood Security Escort Van service has a new name, effective today, April 4. The Blue Jay Shuttle, now operating under the Office of Parking and Transportation, will provide routes and point-to-point services to Johns Hopkins affiliates within a limited service area surrounding the Homewood campus. The operator is Broadway Services Inc.

Transportation management and BSI will study ridership data to evaluate changes for the future, with plans to implement additional routes to service higher-volume locations in the coming months. No significant changes are planned for the remainder of this semester. GPS systems will be installed on the vans later this year to help management and customers keep track of vehicle locations and reduce waiting times. Questions, comments or feedback should be sent to shuttles@jhu.edu.
