Transportation tips

  • Public transportation - Metrobus - stops right at the GSFC main gate. Bus maps are available at: https://www.wmata.com/schedules/maps/upload/WEB_PG-County-Metrobus-System-Map-FINAL.pdf
    (with GSFC compound marked in grey on the top page in the upper right hand side corner).
    Some metro buses connect GSFC with University of Maryland.

  • Within Goddard there is a free "Goddard taxi" - a little shuttle that can save you 10 minute walk from the main GSFC gate to Building 21 within the GSFC compound, where the Bootcamp is held (and back to the main gate in the afternoon). You have to call 301-346-8276 about 10-15 mins before you need a ride and schedule a pick up. It operates 7am - 5:30pm weekdays.
  • Bright yellow bikes on GSFC territory are part of GSFC Bikeshare and can be borrowed for a ride WITHIN the GSFC compound (pick up/drop off a bike next to any building).
