The University of Georgia Campus Transit system operates nine weekday routes, three night routes, one overnight route (providing 24-hour service on weekdays) and one weekend route on the campus and vicinity of the University. Campus Transit has an average daily ridership of 39,765. The system also runs two shuttles on football home game days.
All fixed routes are fare-free and open to anyone including students, faculty/staff, visitors. The service is funded primarily by a "transportation fee" paid by students each semester.
