Transportation and Parking

A Tulane shuttle bus is pictured parked in front of Newcomb Hall with a bright green Tulane University shuttle bus wrap covering its sides.

Tulane makes it easy for students to get around campus and around New Orleans with shuttle and parking services. There are several different shuttle lines that bring students to numerous locations around the city, including the downtown and Elmwood campuses as well as shopping and entertainment areas. This makes it easy for students to go shopping or run errands during the week without spending tons of extra money on an Uber or taxi. Students can also take advantage of TapRide, an on-demand, point-to-point van service, which is available every night of the week.

First-year students are not allowed to bring cars to campus, but sophomores and upperclassmen living on campus can buy a parking permit. Commuter permits are available as well for non-campus residents. Metered spaces are located throughout campus for short-term parking and loading/unloading zones are located near many residence halls.
