Shuttle Bus (Owl Express)

Alternate Powered Vehicles

The Parking and Transportation Services Office offers preferred parking to individuals who drive Alternate Powered Vehicles to campus. There are currently three parking spaces located in the northwest corner of Lot 1 (near the College of Nursing) that are reserved for Alternate Powered Vehicles. These spaces are reserved 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Other vehicles that park in these spaces are subject to being fined and/or towed at the owner's expense.

For purposes of enforcement, an Alternate Powered Vehicle is defined as a vehicle that is solely powered by an electric motor. Please note that hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles do not qualify as Alternate Powered Vehicles under this definition.


Tri-Rail Shuttle (Route 94)

There is now a shuttle that runs directly between the Tri-Rail station at Yamato Road and FAU. The shuttle runs every 20 minutes from 6:45 am - 9:00 pm and is a short 10 minute ride. Please click here to be connected to the Palm Tran website for the full schedule and route map.
