Shuttle Bus and Public Transport


Service Organization

The Shuttle Bus makes a round trip of the EUI campus several times a day to collect and deliver internal mail for Services and Departments, and to distribute stationery, material and documents produced by the Print Shop.

The Shuttle also offers a passenger transportation service for EUI members and users between EUI premises (including Researchers' flats at Pian di Mugnone and Ponte alla Badia and Palazzo Buontalenti), in order to facilitate mobility within the Campus;  it also gives the opportunity to the entire EUI community to use the canteen services in the Badia, Villa Schifanoia, Villa Salviati and Villa la Fonte.


Timetable and Routes

There are 3 shuttle lines running through the EUI campus (A, B & C), from Monday to Friday and excluding official EUI Holidays and closures.

A & B lines link all EUI premises (including Researchers' flats at Pian di Mugnone and Ponte alla Badia) to collect and deliver internal mail (see above) and to offer transportation service to EUI members and users. The C line connects San Domenico (Villa Malafrasca) to palazzo Buontalenti and back.
