- Paratransit Services
The Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) at Rutgers provides a comprehensive transit system which serves all destinations on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses. All of our campus buses are equipped to handle individuals with mobility impairments and have low entrance steps and/or mechanical platforms for wheelchair accessibility.
For students who require accessible transportation who cannot utilize the typical campus bus service for a particular reason due to a temporary or permanent disability, Rutgers offers a paratransit van. To be considered for this additional van service please click here.
- The Knight Mover
The Knight Mover provides transportation within or between all of the Rutgers University New Brunswick & Piscataway Campuses after the Intercampus Transit System ceases to operate for the night. Call the Knight Mover phone number to request transportation. This service is open only to Rutgers University affiliated persons (Faculty, Staff, Students). You must show valid university ID to the driver in order to board the Knight Mover shuttle. You cannot reserve a Knight Mover pickup time in advance. You have to be ready and available for immediate/prompt pickup at the time that you called in your request. Please allow sufficient total travel time (account for the time it takes for the shuttle to arrive once you request service, the shuttle potentially picking up and dropping off other passengers along the way, and current road/weather conditions) especially if you need to be at a particular destination at a certain time.
During the Fall and Spring Semesters: The Knight Mover Service operates from 3:00 AM until 6:00 AM Monday through Thursday morning. New requests are not taken after 5:45 AM in order to be able to complete any pending requests before 6:00 AM when the normal morning Campus Bus service begins. The Knight Mover does not operate Friday through Sunday mornings as the normal Campus Bus service is running.
