SERVICE TO THE AIRPORTS
The loading point for all Holiday Shuttles will be in the Ag Center commuter lot (A120) on the corner of South Stadium and Highland. Look for the Holiday Shuttle signs.
Students MUST HAVE A VALID STUDENT PARKING PERMIT if they plan on leaving their cars in the Ag Center lot. Students will not be ticketed/towed as long as they have a valid parking permit (residential/commuter/Greek) and park in the Ag Center lot or any of the surrounding residential, commuter, or Greek lots. STUDENTS SHOULD NOT PARK IN ANY FACULTY/STAFF LOTS OR THEY WILL BE TICKETED/TOWED. (Life Sciences Lot highlighted in gold pictured below). For a full sized version of this parking map, click here. Please note that students are leaving their cars in these lots at their own risk.
*Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your shuttle departure time to avoid any delays getting to the airport.
RETURN SERVICE TO CAMPUS
For return service back to campus, white Campus Transit vans will pick up students in front of the terminal outside of baggage claim at the Baton Rouge airport and purple Tiger Trails buses will pick up students on the upper concourse of the New Orleans airport. (Note: baggage claim is on the lower concourse, and students will need to go upstairs to the upper level to board the shuttle heading back to campus.)
Students may track their shuttles through the TransLōc app, which can downloaded onto a mobile device or accessed at http://lsu.transloc.com/info/mobile. The Baton Rouge Holiday Shuttle will appear as a “Campus Transit” bus, and the New Orleans Holiday Shuttle will appear as a “Charter” bus on the TransLōc app.
**All students who register for the holiday shuttles will receive communication reminders prior to each scheduled shuttle dates. Please pay special attention to these reminders in case drop off or pick up locations change.
