Shuttle UM is the student run transit system serving the University of Maryland-College Park. Shuttle UM was founded in 1972 by the university's Black Student Union to provide an alternative to walking for students traversing campus at night. In its first year of service, Shuttle UM provided 65,000 rides. Today, Shuttle UM provides nearly 3 million rides annually across 31 routes using a fleet of about 60 buses. While some drivers are full time employees of the university, many bus operator shifts, dispatching, and other functions to run Shuttle UM are handled by students.
