Transportation Options

While many students have their personal vehicles on-campus, there remain many students who do not have access to their own personal vehicle or that of a friend. While the CMMC Emergency Department is very proximate to campus, we recognize that students may need access to transportation to get to and from local facilities. There are number of transportation options available:

Bobcat Express

Monday through Friday

The Bobcat Express Reservation Request Form is intended for Doctor’s and Medical Appointments, Prescription Pick-up, and appointments only. The Bobcat Shuttle runs Monday through Friday 10 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Please make your appointments during these times. If an appointment is needed outside of this time frame, we will try our best to accommodate you.


The Bobcat Express will transport students for medical care any time from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. To request a ride for medical care, call 207-786-6254.

There is also a free Lewiston-Auburn Shuttle, which departs from 56 Campus Ave, next to Chase Hall, Thursday through Sunday evenings. As a special service upon request, the Shuttle driver will take students to and from Central Maine Medical Center and B Street Health Center.The driver will only go to these locations if requested, so if you are headed there be sure to let the driver know.

If you have a serious injury or emergency that requires immediate transportation, call security at (207) 786-6111.
