The Vanderbilt Police Department administers the Vandy Vans shuttle bus program at Vanderbilt University. The Vandy Vans pick up and drop off at pre-designated points on campus. The service operates from 5:00 PM to 5:00 AM during the fall and spring semesters. The vans follow three routes on campus.
The VSG Airport Express shuttle operates on major holidays and breaks to offer affordable, reliable and convenient bus transportation to Vanderbilt undergraduate students from the Vanderbilt campus to the airport and back.
Commodore Cabs is a partnership between VSG, the Commodore Card Office, and TaxiUSA (the overseeing company for Allied, Diamond, and Nashville cabs) that started in the Fall of the 2010. Under this program, students are able to split cab fares.
The Commodore Express operates on select Sundays every month with services to Target, Kroger, and the Green Hills Mall along with special service to the Opry Mills Mall. The express service is provided at no charge to all students.
