Shuttle service

The EMBL shuttle connects the EMBL Heidelberg site with the Hotel ISG and Guest Houses.

The morning and evening shuttle service for EMBL employees is free of charge and runs between the Boxberg Guest Houses, Hotel ISG and EMBL.

EMBL offers a morning and an evening shuttle service for the EMBL employees which is free of charge. Due to the corona situation, the morning shuttle between the Boxberg Guesthouse, Hotel ISG and EMBL has been suspended for the moment. However, due to the Corona situation, we will offer two new morning runs on a trial basis: the starting point is the area behind the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Heidelberg. The shuttle will have a stop at the Alois Link Platz and then drive up to EMBL.

As there is a limited number of 12 seats available, a reservation must be made in advance for these new morning runs in the booking calendar. The start date is Monday, 1 March.

Please find here the link to the shuttle booking instructions.

The evening shuttle is a roundtrip shuttle service, going from the EMBL main entrance via Guesthouse Boxberg to the Hotel ISG/Mombertplatz and back, and there are four trips additionally down to Alois-Link-Platz and Bismarckplatz. Also there are two new trips available to HD train station starting at 18:00 & 20:05. The shuttle service is a voluntary benefit offered by EMBL and is designated to transport employees when going home from EMBL after work. People living in the Guesthouses wishing to go downtown for private purposes are to use public transportation and not the shuttle! They may be asked to get off the shuttle.

In general, the shuttle service is provided by our EMBL drivers. In case of absence of one of the drivers the entire evening service will be provided by the external company ABS. The passenger capacity is then limited to 7 seats. Alternatively please use the Taxi 1004 on-call.

Please note that taxi rides will not be paid for by EMBL. If you wish to take a taxi instead of the shuttle it will be at your own expense.
