Warrior Shuttle

Catch a Ride with the Warrior Shuttle

The Warrior Shuttle is a free service for Merrimack College faculty, staff and students. Whether you need a quick lift to The Center for Innovation and Research in Engineering and Computational Sciences, a grocery run to Market Basket, a visit to Tuscan Village to shop and eat, or a ride to the train station, the Warrior Shuttle will get you there.

What Makes the Warrior Shuttle Great Warrior Shuttle

  • Convenient stops, both on and off campus
  • It’s your favorite price - free!
  • Plenty of seats for you (and all your friends)
  • Weekend stops at Market Basket, CVS, The LOOP (Methuen, MA) and Tuscan Village (Salem, NH)
  • Safer, easier and less expensive than an Uber or Lyft

Blue & Gold Lines: Where the Shuttle Goes

The Warrior Shuttle has two lines. On weekdays, the Blue Line will take you around campus and to off-campus parking. On weekends, the Blue Line ventures off-campus so you can run errands, go shopping, eat out or catch a movie. The Gold Line is an express line with fewer stops—use it when you need to catch a commuter rail train, park off campus, study at the library or get to Crowe Hall
