Campus Transportation / Vern Express

The Vern Express provides transportation between GW's Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses.  A typical one-way trip takes 10-15 minutes, although passengers are encouraged to allow extra time during periods of heavy traffic, typically 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. 

Priority is given to current students, staff, and faculty traveling between campuses.  Group coordinators should not  expect to use the Shuttle to transport their participants between campuses. Should your programming needs call for moving the entire group at once, coordinators should contract dedicated transportation with our campus provider, International Limousine.  Please contact Summer & Conference Housing if you are interested in this as an option.
