RPI’s RedHawk Shuttle runs roughly every 15 minutes. There is an East shuttle and a West shuttle. The East shuttle covers the BARH and ECAV areas, in addition to a good amount of off campus housing. The West shuttle covers mostly the academic part of campus. Both stop at the Union (in addition to many other scheduled stops around campus). The shuttle is free for students, but only stops at the scheduled stops. Additional shuttle service operates for home football and hockey games, Troy Night Out (first Friday of each month), and other special events. The shuttle service operates from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on all weekdays. Students can also ride CDTA (Capital District Transit Authority) buses for free by swiping their student ID.
I only know of one time this past year when shuttle service was cancelled for the inclement weather. Most of the time, walking home in the snow is manageable, but then again I love to walk.
