UM shuttle Grand Prix Alert

Grand Prix Modified RoutesUM Shuttle 


#703 Federal Hill Route Detour

Monday, Aug. 27 through Sunday Sept. 2, the #703 Federal Hill route will be modified due to preparations for the 2nd annual Baltimore Grand Prix. During this time all the bus stops along Pratt St., Charles St. and Lombard St. will not be serviced by the #703 route. 


NextBus arrival predictions are also expected to be affected by this substantial detour. Passengers are encouraged to refer to the schedule and the detour map for the #703 route.


#701 BioPark & #702 Mount Vernon

The #701 BioPark and #702 Mount Vernon routes will not have any service changes due to the race, however there is an increased likelihood of those routes running late due to the additional traffic that is expected along their routes.
