Motor Pool

Salisbury University’s Motor Pool maintains a fleet of clean, safe, well-maintained cars, vans, buses, and maintenance and utility vehicles for official University use.

Reserve Your State Vehicle Through Us!

Need a vehicle for official University travel? Submit your request through the GullNet web portal using these Directions for Submitting a Motor Pool Request. Supervisors also should use GullNet to approve Motor Pool reservation requests for their office, following these Directions for Approving a Motor Pool Request.

Priority for cars and vans is given to those traveling for Admissions, Academics or Athletics. Priority for buses is given to groups traveling for Athletics or Academics. Cars and van reservations for non-Admissions purposes may be revoked at any time should that vehicle be needed for Admissions travel. Bus reservations for student groups may be revoked up to two weeks before the scheduled reservation should the bus be needed for Athletics travel.

All employees who operate University-owned vehicles must comply with the SU Vehicle Policy for State Vehicles. Drivers with Maryland licenses must send a completed Driver Registration Form to the Motor Pool Office, Maintenance Building, Room 104, via campus mail and receive approval before using University-owned vehicles. If you have an out-of-state license, send the form along with your driving record, available from your local department of motor vehicles.

Get on the Bus! Campus Shuttle Service

SU partners with Shore Transit to provide weekday shuttle service to SU from off-campus student housing at University Park, University Village and The Gathering at Salisbury, as well as the University’s Avery Street parking lot. Shuttles drop off and pick up at the bus stop near the Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Commons. See the shuttle map for more details.

Shuttles make a continuous loop, with pickups and drop-offs every 15-25 minutes. Buses operate from 7 a.m.-8:30 p.m. and vans from 8:30 p.m.-2:15 a.m. during the semester (Note: Shuttle service ends at 10:15 p.m. Fridays.)

NEXTBus provides GPS-based real-time shuttle arrival information. (The SU shuttle loop is Route 108.) For current information visit the SU NEXTBus website, text “SUshuttle” and your stop number (posted at each stop) to 41-411, or call 443-389-0328 and follow the prompts.

Riders must present their SU Gull Card ID to board. Please make sure you know the SU shuttle rules before riding.
