Marguerite shuttle system
Marguerite is Stanford's free public shuttle service, which travels around campus and connects to nearby transit, shopping, dining, and entertainment. Marguerite is free and open to the public – no ID required. The main shuttle lines traverse the campus Monday - Friday all year (except University holidays). All buses are wheelchair-accessible & have bike racks.
Once families have seen the patient after surgery and feel comfortable leaving, it is advised that family seek a hotel reservation to get some rest and a comfortable place to utilize as "home base" while the patient is hospitalized. If you or a family member is expected to be hospitalized for more than a week please speak with a social worker regarding the availability of campus housing.
Your social worker will work with you on finding post-transplant or post VAD affordable housing. You will be asked to stay within 20 minutes of the hospital. Transplant patients will be required to stay in the area for a three month period; VAD patients are required to stay two weeks.
