Homewood Transportation Services provides several services to faculty, staff and students. The primary services include:
Blue Jay Shuttle
The Blue Jay Shuttle service operates on a combination of request-only Night Ride and ride-anytime fixed-routes in an area proximate to the Homewood campus from 5:30pm to 3:45am nightly, seven days per week, excluding University holidays and other dates as determined by the University. The fleet of vans departs from Brody Learning Commons – seen as the shuttle’s transportation hub – starting at 5:50pm. The shuttles are equipped with TransLoc, a GPS-based real-time transit information system available online or through a mobile device. To view the Blue Jay Shuttle routes and to track the vans, go to http://jhu.transloc.com on either a computer or a smartphone. TransLoc’s free app is available at www.translocrider.com.
The color-coded routes include marked “flag stops” – safe passenger loading zones – at selected university-owned buildings, off-campus residence halls and commercial/retail locations. Passengers must be at a designated flag stop and use their J-Card to “flag the shuttle” in order to board route vans. Drivers do not deviate from their fixed route except in the case of emergency. All Johns Hopkins affiliates with a valid J-card can use the Blue Jay Shuttle. Passengers are expected to carry all personal items, backpacks, grocery bags, etc. on and off the shuttle in one trip so as not to delay the shuttle.
After 11:30pm the fixed routes cease service. The Brody Shuffle departs BLC every half hour (on the :00 and :30) from 11:30pm until 3:00am. Passengers notify driver of their destination and the driver will coordinate drop-offs in an efficient manner. Night Ride continues service until 3:45am. Use the Transloc app to request a ride or call (410) 516-8700 to request a Night Ride and the dispatcher will provide passenger(s) with an estimated time of arrival.
In the case of severe weather conditions, Blue Jay Shuttle service may be temporarily suspended as circumstances warrant but shall be resumed thereafter as soon as reasonably possible. Notifications will be kept up to date on http://jhu.transloc.com, www.ts.jhu.edu, and www.facebook.com/jhutransportation.
