If you have any questions or concerns about this holiday shuttle service, please contact the Office of Student Engagement at 717-796-5240.
***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.
