The UVA Research Park has decided to suspend Park Connect Shuttle Services following the final run(s) on Friday, March 20, 2020 to assist in protecting our community and limiting exposure for those most vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. The safety of our riders, employees and community is a top priority. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the guidance of health experts. Park Connect Shuttle Service will be reinstated as expeditiously as possible. Please check here for updates about Park Connect, information, and status updates related to Coronavirus. Thank you for understanding and please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.
Park Connect is a free shuttle service connecting the University of Virginia Research Park, University of Virginia Health System, and Central Grounds.
