BreakShuttle is the largest provider of college & university break transit services in the United States. BreakShuttle enables students to travel safely and comfortably on luxury motor coaches between the Wake Forest University campus and Richmond, VA and Silver Springs, Maryland and the start and end of school breaks.

How BreakShuttle Works:

Getting home with BreakShuttle is incredibly simple.

  1. Students purchase a ticket through the easy-to-use website:
  2. BreakShuttle sends students an E-Ticket via email.
  3. Students print their tickets and bring to the bus on the day of travel.

On the scheduled day of break, easy to find shuttles pick students up directly in front of the Manchester Athletic Center on the Wake Forest campus. After students are safely checked in and onboard, all they have to do is sit back and relax. BreakShuttle buses are equipped with the latest in entertainment, comfort, and safety features. On many buses students can surf the web, watch a DVD, or just take a nap. Students are dropped off at high-density transportation centers in regional destination cities (such as airports and Amtrak stations) providing a door-to-door luxury transportation experience.

Safety is Key:

Each of the local BreakShuttle bus partners is chosen primarily on their safety record as reported by the Department of Transportation and state transportation agencies. BreakShuttle partners are regularly vetted through the DOT’s “SafeStat” program to ensure continuing compliance and safety excellence. In addition, prior to each trip operated for BreakShuttle the luxury motor coach undergoes a thorough mechanical inspection by select qualified mechanics along with periodic total mechanical inspections, which are reported to the Department of Transportation (and verified by BreakShuttle).
