Wait for the Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) bus (it is well-marked). The shuttle will give you a free ride to the University and will let you off between the Southwest Quad and McDonough Arena. Please note that the GUTS bus does not run on Saturday mornings or on Sunday. Click here to see the GUTS Bus schedule.
