“I’m a parent of a student at Bucknell and wanted to let you know how happy we are with the new shuttle bus company! In the past with other companies, we literally could not reach them by phone, and they never replied to emails. In contrast, the communication with Martz is amazing, they are responsive and nice. I have received return emails back and even spoken to actual people! Most importantly, the buses are in good condition and the drivers were polite.”– Bucknell University Parent.

Passengers are to be picked up and dropped off at the Shuttle Stop located in the Smith Parking lot on the Bucknell University campus.
