The department is responsible for transporting students between the hostel and the university. The department has many buses which make more than fifty trips daily.
This department also provides students with transport to activities outside the university, for example visits to scientific and entertainment venues, lectures or conferences. Two buses are kept on standby round the clock to cover emergency requirements.
The transportation department has defined the regulations governing the use of its buses and the fees student pay in order to ensure the systematic and good quality services. These regulations are distributed to student who opt for making use of this facility.

- Coordinate the transportation of students to participate in various activities
- Elicit student views concerning the transportation services offered
- Solve student problems with the cooperation of advisors, who keep the DSA informed of recent developments
- Improve the organizational performance in order to achieve high standards of services.
