Getting Around MD Anderson

MD Anderson ground shuttles are available for patients traveling between the Main Building, Mays Clinic, Hospitality Apartments, Proton Therapy Center and Radiation Outpatient Center. 

Patient shuttles have a lavender-colored sign on the side. It takes approximately 20-25 minutes to complete a lap. All shuttles are equipped with wheel chair lifts. Family members may also ride the shuttle, but we ask that each patient have no more than three guests to ensure there is room for patients traveling to their appointments.
