Colts Bus Services: University of Scranton Partnership with County of Lackawanna Transit System
The University of Scranton has contracted with the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) to give students, faculty and staff access to all 31 COLTS routes. Through the COLTS Campus Connections service, members of the University community are able to ride all COLTS buses free with their Royal Cards. The extensive COLTS network gives our campus community access to shopping, dining, entertainment, attractions and other area colleges. It also provides transportation options for internships, community service and employment. COLTS buses run Monday-Saturday. There are no services on Sundays.
