Transportation Services

Whether you are in need of a ride to local shopping destinations or local transportation depots, SFU Student Life is happy to help!  We provide regular transportation/shuttle services to the  Walmart in Ebensburg, the local shopping malls in Altoona and Johnstown, the Altoona Transportation Center (for bus service or Amtrak train), the Johnstown/Cambria County Airport, and the Pittsburgh International Airport.  A full listing of this semester's shuttle schedule is posted below.  Not sure how to get to campus?  Try our campus maps and directions!

We've partnered with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and their new CarShare program which allows you to rent an entire car from on campus at a low hourly rate (includes gas, maintenance, and insurance)! 

To get started, go to our official SFU CarShare link and create your membership account.  Then simply download the app, reserve a car, and drive! 

Be sure to view the Enterprise CarShare program's Frequently Asked Questions.
