Local Bicycle Resources


Public transportation in the U.S. may not be as ubiquitous as you are used to and transportation and parking can be challenging in Newark. 

The UD Transportation website provides a lot of good, detailed information about local and regional transit options. The UD Parking Services website and City of Newark Parking webpage are other helpful resources.

On campus there is a regular shuttle bus system that connects the residence halls and some apartments with campus buildings/facilities. If you choose to live further from campus, access to a car will probably be necessary. Some students use bicycles, scooters, and skateboards to travel around campus and throughout the community. 

For all of these modes of transportation, be sure you are aware of the “rules of the road.” Read about traffic safety in the U.S. on our Safety webpage.

2020-21 COVID Transportation Update

With the support of UD Transportation, we have gathered the following information about the local transportation options that were available as of Fall 2020, including for residents of local apartment complexes. Find more information about these transportation options: UD Transportation, DART First State and Unicity Bus.

Beginning September 1, four buses will operate continuously on a North/South College Avenue route Monday through Friday, arriving at each stop once every 7-9 minutes, 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. Seating capacity is limited to 8 passengers per bus. At this time no other routes will operate.

No DART service is available. Unicity would be the exclusive mode of transportation. The proposed new schedule is: two departures in the morning, 7:37 a.m. and 8:22 a.m., and two arrivals in the afternoon, 4:52 p.m. and 5:37 p.m.

DART route 55 passes by on Marrows Rd, Wyoming Rd, and Library Avenue inbound to the Newark transit hub and in the reverse order outbound. These are roughly hourly arrival/departures starting around 6:45 a.m. From the transit hub riders can reach Unicity or other Dart routes. Route 34 can also be used this way, although it has a limited timetable. The proposed new schedule for Unicity would have half hour intervals from transit hub to South College Ave, 7:56 a.m. - 8:56 a.m. and 4:12 p.m. - 5:42 p.m. and hourly intervals, 9:12 a.m. - 4:12 p.m.
