Shuttle Service:

Eastern provides shuttle service (to and from campus) from the Radnor stations only, since there are no sidewalks to campus from those stations. The Transportation Shuttle provides transportation to the Radnor High Speed line (R100), Paoli/Thorndale (R5) and locations throughout campus, once an hour. This transportation schedule operates from 6:00 am to 8:55 pm.  During other hours, transports are "Upon Request", meaning one needs only to call 610-341-1737 and request a transport.
