Kenyon partners with Knox Area Transit (KAT) to provide public transportation from Gambier. The Purple Line Shuttle runs Monday through Saturday (see hours below) and loops through downtown Mount Vernon, the Coshocton Avenue business area, The Pines of Apple Valley and back to Gambier.

Kenyon students, faculty and staff can present their Kenyon ID for free service; for the general public, the fare is $1. Visit KAT on Facebook for more information. For mobility device service, call 740-392-7433. Carry-on items should be limited to what can be boarded in one trip and will remain in the seat with you.

Stop times are the earliest time the shuttle will arrive and leave the stop. Due to traffic and other circumstances, please allow up to five minutes after the posted arrival time.
