Free Shuttle - Georgetown University Transportation System (GUTS)

MedStar Georgetown and Georgetown University provide free shuttle service for patients, visitors and families to and from Dupont Circle (Massachusetts Avenue and 20th Street) and Rosslyn Metro stations. For the shuttle schedule, click here or call 202-444-RIDE (7433) for pre-recorded information.

All shuttle buses enter the University campus via Canal Road and pick up and drop off passengers in the shuttle bus loop by the Southwest Quad and McDonough Gym.   

To assist people getting from the shuttle bus loop to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Georgetown University is providing two 10-seat mini shuttle buses. For more information about the mini-shuttle bus service, click here.

Hospital employees must show ID badge when boarding. Patients, or family of a patient, will need to inform the driver that they are coming to the hospital for a medical reason and will be asked to write down their name upon boarding.

Please Note

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital's shuttle bus provider, International Limousine, will ask all staff, volunteers and patients to present a valid ID (hospital ID, driver's license or state ID, etc.) to utilize the shuttle bus. This process is required by Washington Metro Area Transit Authority.

Please make sure you have a valid ID with you when you board any shuttle bus. Please note that presenting an ID will be required by all shuttle services (GUTS, Abe's, or International Limo). Patients and visitors will be required to present ID and sign-in as well.

At times there may be construction occurring on the Hospital campus or the University campus which may cause minor delays to the shuttle bus schedule and/or changes to pedestrian routes to the Hospital. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as we make changes to meet the needs of our community.
