Transportation and Parking

The George Washington University (GW) Transportation and Parking Services Department, part of the Division of Operations, is responsible for managing the day-to-day parking operations at GW’s Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses along with the transportation services providing access to our three main campuses. GW is strongly committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities are afforded easy parking and transportation access to our Foggy Bottom Campus, Mount Vernon Campus and Virginia Science and Technology Campus.


At GW, we have a total of 23 parking facilities; five of which include visitor parking while the other facilities provide GW authorized students and employees with their daily parking needs. All of our parking facilities have accessible parking spaces within reasonably close proximity to entrances, elevators, doors and ramps.


Persons with disabilities who utilize our shuttle services have access to our robust GW transportation network and services, which operate throughout the year. All shuttles serving GW routes are designed to meet ADA accessibility guidelines and requirements for safe and secure transport of persons with disabilities. All shuttles have:

  • Wheelchair lifts
  • Priority seating signage in front rows
  • Curb to curb pick-up/drop-off; and/or
  • Pick-up/drop-off at campus ADA accessible curb ramps and access ways, if required.

Special Events

When special event transportation services are provided, arrangements can be made to assign at least one vehicle asset with a wheelchair lift for riders in wheelchairs by calling the ILS Dispatch at 202-388-8600, extension 236.
