Our colleagues in Mason Parking & Transportation want to share some information regarding regional transportation for the upcoming Winter Break.

Mason offers affordable transportation to regional cities for the Winter Break. Destinations include Richmond, Hampton, and Virginia Beach, as well as Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York. Buses will leave on Wednesday, December 18 to regional cities and return on Sunday, January 19. For a complete list of destinations, departure times, pickup locations, and to reserve a seat, please visit shuttle.gmu.edu or directly at Winter Break Transportation 2019.

You always have access to Zimride which is the University’s free rideshare network for students, staff, and faculty. You can sign up with your Mason NetID to find others in the area with whom to carpool and save money on gas.

Additionally:

Mason’s Burke Centre VRE shuttle travels from the Fairfax campus to the Burke train station, and you can take a connecting AMTRAK or VRE train from there. Burke is on the VRE Manassas line.

If you are traveling to area airports, they are accessible via public transportation, Super Shuttle, Uber/Lyft, or Taxi. For details on public transportation access, please visit our Airport Transportation page.

Are you looking for a way to pay for school and unsure how to go about it? There’s a way to fund your education that doesn’t involve taking on loans. Income Share Agreements, or ISAs, are a more flexible, affordable way to pay for school. You don’t accrue interest or have a principal amount. We give you an upfront payment for your tuition, and you’ll pay us only once you’ve graduated. The best part? Payments for ISAs are always just a small percentage of your income, so you’’ll never pay more than you can afford. Doesn’t that sound so much better? Find out more about ISAs at
Wow, Graduate Student Life at Mason! Just updated the calendar in my office for April, and you all will be even busier than usual!! And this isn’t even everything... Keep up the awesome work! 👍🏼
