Transportation to Partner Sites

Students who need transportation to off-campus sites for academic extension student engaged service learning, internships, and community service commitments can use one of our two shuttle services. For more information, please visit the Bobcat Express Service Learning Shuttle webpage on the Campus Safety website.

Other Ways to Get Around

If you choose to use a means of transportation other than the shuttle, please bear the following in mind:

  • We are close to downtown; you can often walk or bike (especially great with friends!) to your community partnership sites.
  • There is a public bus service (known as the Purple Bus) in Lewiston/Auburn; you can find schedules, fares, and route information online at

If you choose to ride in a private vehicle, the primary  insurance coverage is that of the vehicle.  So if you decide to drive three buddies in your car to a volunteer event, your car’s insurance is what will take care of everyone if anything happens.  Similarly, if you borrow a friend’s car, his/her insurance will be primary.
