Metro buses make traveling to your favorite off campus locations easy and sustainable with stops at Kenwood Mall, downtown Cincinnati, Kroger, Target and more!
The two Metro bus routes that best serve the Xavier area are Route 4 and Route 51 (click links for maps). The routes have stops right next to Xavier's campus on both Dana Ave and Montgomery Rd and travel to anywhere you could want to go, including downtown Cincinnati, Kenwood, and the University of Cincinnati. Fare each way is only $1.75 within Zone 1 (everywhere within the city of Cincinnati) and costs only a little more to go to nearby counties.
The Xavier Shuttle is sponsored by the Division of Student Life and Leadership and the Student Government Association and is managed by the Gallagher Student Center office. Its mission is to provide Xavier students shuttle service between the university's campus and surrounding neighborhoods. The shuttles run on a fixed route. Xavier students must show their All Card and non-students must be accompanied by a Xavier student. No alcohol is permitted on the shuttle.

In 2018 Xavier and the company Lime, introduced the Lime bikes on campus to provide easier, more sustainable transportation for students. The partnership was set up by Xavier's Co-Chair of the Sustainability Committee and Professor, Dr. Nancy Bertaux, along with the rest of the committee members. Following the bikes came the scooters all in an effort to help with Xavier's and students carbon footprint. To read more about the company and how it works on campus click here!
