Feedback: Recently we had a large group visiting the NIH campus and the problem we had was getting them to the different locations. We either had to walk or pack on to the regular campus shuttle, which left barely any standing room. Why doesn’t NIH provide shuttles you can reserve to shuttle such groups around?
Response from the Office of Research Facilities: Thank you for your question concerning special event shuttles. The Office of Research Services, Division of Amenities and Transportation Services (DATS) manages the NIH Shuttle Program. The NIH Shuttle contract provides employee and patient shuttles, as well as a limited number of shuttles for special NIH-wide events throughout the year.
If an IC needs a shuttle for an IC-sponsored event, DATS can assist in procuring a shuttle from our contractor at the IC’s expense.
If you have additional questions or want to inquire about shuttle availability, contact DATS Shuttle Program manager Louise Davis at (301) 496-9621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
