Transportation

Wildcat Wheels is currently assessing ridership in order to effectively place our busses where riders need them most. For the most up-to-date bus schedules visit via JWU LINK, as we update in real-time. 

-Here are answers to some FAQs:

  • We do not provide service to/from the airport, bus or train stations.
  • Our main bus stop locations are Gaebe Commons, Harborside (Wildcat Center) and Harbor View. (Xavier and Harborside Village bus stops are courtesy drop-off locations.)
  • If you purchase a RIPTA - UPASS your JWU Student ID will be the card you use to swipe upon entrance of the RIPTA vehicle. Remember JWU buses are free to ride for JWU students, the RIPTA - UPASS is if you wish to commute in the local area.  
  • If you have a specific question, email us at WildcatWheels@jwu.edu.
