Transportation

Visitors have many options for getting to campus. Public transportation (Metrobus, Metrorail, and the DC Circulator bus) is recommended due to traffic congestion. The Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) offer free shuttles from the Dupont Circle (Red Line) and Rosslyn (Blue and Orange lines) Metro stations to campus.
