2019-2020 Holiday Shuttle Service

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Messiah College Shuttle Service, powered by SignUpGenius.com!

Choose the holiday break you are interested in reserving a seat for, create a username and password that you can reuse, and choose a seat to leave campus and return to campus.

You can reserve a shuttle seat for one holiday shuttle service or all of them!

***IMPORTANT NOTE: The form for reservations will close at midnight the night before the shuttle starts. For example, if the shuttle starts on a Tuesday, it will close Monday night at midnight. This will allow us to best manage the schedule for the shuttle drivers. And, most importantly, it ensures that no one gets left behind due to last minute changes. Thank you.

BEFORE the holiday break the shuttles will leave Messiah College at the following times:  8am, 10am, 12noon, 2pm, 4pm & 6pm.  The shuttle will drop off at the Amtrak/Greyhound terminal first, travel to Megabus stop next (if necessary), then travel to the Harrisburg International Airport.

*** For Christmas Break only... we will offer ONE earlier shuttle each day that will travel to the train station and airport. Please email your transportation needs (where and what time) to silp@messiah.edu if you are in need of an earlier shuttle time than 8am. Earlier shuttle departure times will be scheduled at our discretion, based on the number of students that request it and time needed (example: earlier could mean a 4:30am departure from campus) ***

AFTER the holiday break the shuttles will start pickups from the Amtrak/Greyhound terminal then travel to the Megabus stop (if necessary), then to the Harrisburg Int'l Airport beginning at the following times: 11:15am, 1:15pm, 3:15pm, 5:15pm, 7:15pm, 9:15pm & 11:30pm.

Any questions can be directed to the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership Programs. Email silp@messiah.edu or call 717-796-5240.

Extra Travel Tips To Consider....

BEFORE the holiday break the shuttles will leave Messiah College at the following times:  8am, 10am, 12Noon, 2pm, 4pm & 6pm. The shuttle will drop off at the Amtrak/Greyhound terminal first, travel to Megabus stop next (if necessary), then travel to the Harrisburg International Airport.  There will be a certain number of seats available with each time slot only.  When the spots are filled there will not be any more availability left.  If you see an open spot you are welcome to sign up for it.  You may only sign up for 1 time slot for departure (in other words, you cannot hold 2 time slots for departure).  Please choose the departure time that best suits your schedule.  No change in shuttle times will be made for special accommodations.  We don’t want anyone to miss a class or skip work in order to catch a desirable shuttle time, but this is your choice.  Please be sure you account for 30 minutes of waiting time at the train or bus station and 1.5 – 2 hours at the airport. It takes at least 30 minutes to get to each place from Messiah College.

AFTER the holiday break the shuttles will start pickups from the Amtrak/Greyhound terminal then travel to the Megabus stop (if necessary), then to the Harrisburg Int'l Airport beginning at the following times: 11:15am, 1:15pm, 3:15pm, 5:15pm, 7:15pm, 9:15pm & 11:30pm. There will be a certain number of seats available with each time slot only.  When the spots are filled there will not be any more availability left.  If you see an open spot you are welcome to sign up for it.  You may only sign up for 1 time slot for arrival (in other words, you cannot hold 2 time slots for arrival).  Please choose the arrival time that best suits your schedule.  No change in shuttle times will be made for special accommodations.  

DON'T BE LATE!  The shuttle will leave on time and will leave if you are not there. Please be at Larsen Student Union a few minutes early if you can be and if you are being picked-up from an arrival location, please be looking for the shuttle.  Also, make sure you have your belongings and your tickets!

You are welcome to contact the office of Student Involvement & Leadership Programs at 717-796-5240 or silp@messiah.edu with any questions prior to signing up if you aren’t sure of how this system works.
