On-Campus Seminole Express Routes
No matter where you're headed – to the library for a study session, a lecture hall for class or the food court for some brain food – getting around Florida State University's campus has never been easier! The on-campus shuttle runs on four different routes, including the Renegade, Garnet, Gold and Heritage.

The Seminole Express operates Monday through Friday, making its rounds from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm in the summer and from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm in the fall and spring.
