Shuttle Bus Times

Dear Students,

The Pirate Express Shuttle has been an overwhelming success for the past year and a half, averaging 383 riders each weekend of operation. The shuttle was operated by Fun Tours, Inc. which was contracted by the City of Hampton to provide essential transportation exclusively to Hampton University students.

Unfortunately, as of December 31, 2018, Fun Tours, Inc. was sold to another transportation company. As a result, the Pirate Express Shuttle has been temporarily suspended while the City of Hampton identifies a new transportation vendor to operate the Pirate Express Shuttle. Hampton University has a strong commitment in its’ partnership with the City of Hampton to continue the success of the Pirate Express Shuttle to provide a low cost transportation option to students each weekend to entertainment and shopping in the City of Hampton.

We will update students as soon as the new transportation company resumes normal operation of the Pirate Express Shuttle in the Spring 2019 term.
