The Juniata Shuttle is a limited service provided for students at important break and holiday travel times. While not a taxi service, the Juniata Shuttle is a coordinated shuttle service that requires students to sign up reasonably in advance in order for the coordination of limited resources. Also, because of privacy and confidentiality concerns, students must sign up for the shuttle service themselves. Parents and family members are encouraged to make their student aware of this service. Students, however, will need to actually log on to our web form to make reservations. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Dean of Students Office at 814-641-3150.
