Night Ride users, please continue to have patience as we continue to adjust to our first full-capacity semester since combining the Homewood and Peabody service areas. Many of you have expressed gratitude for being able to cross between the areas WITHOUT the need to transfer at the JHU-MICA Film Centre. However, the larger, combined service area has resulted in longer overall wait times and ride times. We continue to work with our dispatch provider, TransLoc, to balance and optimize resources appropriately to keep wait and ride times as reasonable as possible. Please keep in mind that Night Ride is a SHARED RIDE service which means riders will very seldom be taken directly from their origin to their destination. We appreciate your continued patience, and your continued feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Saturday, October 9th, multiple major road closures in the area between Homewood, Peabody, and JHMI will be in effect for the Baltimore Running Festival. Homewood-Peabody-JHMI bus service will NOT run in the morning and early afternoon, and will commence with the 320pm departures from JHMI and Interfaith Center. For questions contact email@example.com.
Starting Saturday, October 2nd, the transition of the Homewood-Peabody-JHMI service to our new operator will be complete, and passengers will begin seeing newly-branded, blue "University Shuttle" buses serving the route. A few non-JHU-branded buses may supplement service until all of the fleet is in place. All buses should be tracking normally within TransLoc, regardless.
The weekday timetable will return to its normal frequency with departures every 6 minutes during morning and afternoon peak service, every 15 minutes during midday service, and every 30 minutes in the evenings. Weekend service will be increased with departures every 25 minutes, previously departing every 50 minutes. The updated schedule is posted at https://ts.jhu.edu/Shuttles/ and includes the new Dispatch phone number of (410) 391 8700 for issues requiring immediate attention. As always, riders may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns.
This is the beginning of a longer-term transition to an electric bus fleet, anticipated to be completed sometime in 2026. More information may be found at https://hub.jhu.edu/2021/09/29/new-buses-electric-vehicle-transition/
On Saturday, September 25th, a portion of Charles Street will be closed to vehicular traffic (more information: https://www.charlesstreetpromenade.com/). The Homewood-Peabody-JHMI bus route will be detoured, and several stops relocated, from the beginning of the day until after 3pm.
After making the stop at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute, buses will enter the Mt. Vernon area via Monument Street, stopping on the corner of Monument and Calvert by the SHA Headquarters entrance instead of the usual location for Stop #2 (Peabody Northbound). Stop #3 (Penn Station) will be made at Calvert and Lanvale Streets, but passengers wishing to utilize Penn Station are encouraged to use the Southbound stop (#12) to access the station on Saturday. Stop #4 will be made on westbound North Avenue in front of the Centre Theater / JHU-MICA Film Center. Buses will then resume the regular route from Charles Street and North Avenue.
Starting with the 3:45pm departure from JHMI, buses will resume the normal route.
Please contact (410) 391 8700 or email@example.com with questions about this detour.
