While all Osprey Connector Shuttles on UNF campus are compliant with regulations according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), some riders may face extenuating circumstances that don’t make the regular shuttles as efficient for them.

The Osprey Transit is a new shuttle on campus used exclusively for students, faculty and staff with certain mobility needs. The shuttle is fully accessible, featuring 4 wheelchair seats, as well as eight-10 seats in order to accommodate for other mobility limitations.

This shuttle will serve as both pickup and drop off for riders at campus locations that the regular Osprey Connectors may not otherwise go to. Prospective riders only need to call and schedule a pick up time with Parking and Transportation services prior to 7 p.m.

The Osprey Transit shuttle operates 7:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Fridays, and is not in service during weekends. Parking and Transportation Services asks that riders do not leave weekend phone requests for Monday morning transportation.

Riders may schedule transportation with the Osprey Transit at (904)620-5718
