As often as possible, we encourage students to seek opportunities to use public transportation, carpool, ride a bike, or even walk to you community engagement destination. However, if these options are not practical, we have a few options that may be of interest to you.

Draper Center Shuttle

The Draper Center offers free shuttle service to your community engagement opportunity.  Whether your commitment is a weekly occurrence or a one-time event, we will provide round trip service in our 7 passenger vehicle within a 30 minute drive time from campus.  To make shuttle reservations, please complete the reservation form below. Requests must be made 5 days in advance.

Please note the following:

  • Draper Center Programs always have priority over other requests
  • Availability of the shuttle is not guaranteed, we encourage you to check the shuttle calendar (below) before making a request
  • Unless otherwise noted, you will receive an email confirmation for your request. Your request will not be confirmed until this email is sent by the Draper Center.
