Inter-campus shuttle bus

This free accessible service is available to all USQ students and staff. All you need to do is present your valid USQ Student or Staff ID card to the driver and then take a seat.

The shuttle service runs all year with the exception of the Christmas / New Year period where it generally pauses the week prior to Christmas and resumes the week after New Year. There may be some instances where our services may be interrupted. Please view the Facilities Management notices for further information.

USQ shuttle service is an accessible service in accordance with Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002.  Although there is no obligation for you to do so, it helps if we know in advance if you are wishing to use this service.  Please contact us beforehand so we can ensure the vehicle is already configured for your travel. We will need you to contact us beforehand if you are using a mobility device to ensure it is compatible with our service.
