New Operational Changes and Safety Requirements During COVID-19

Masking required:

Face masks covering the nose and mouth must be worn at all times by all passengers when waiting for the shuttle and when on the shuttle bus. Masks will be available on the bus for passengers who may not have one. Regardless of the number of riders on a particular shuttle, everyone must wear a mask.

Shuttle capacity:

The passenger limit on our shuttles has been reduced to 50% seating capacity (standing passengers will not be allowed). This will allow passengers to maintain distance from one another when riding our shuttles. When the shuttle reaches capacity, the driver will notify waiting riders and they will be asked to wait for the next shuttle.

Cleaning of our shuttles:

All shuttles are disinfected multiple times throughout the day to ensure hand rails and other commonly touched surfaces remain clean. All shuttles will be sanitized overnight. A hand sanitizer dispenser has been added to each shuttle bus. COVID-19 signage has also been placed on buses and shuttle stops.

Social Distancing:

Transportation and Parking requires that passengers maintain at least one empty seat between shuttle riders. To maintain social distancing, every other seat will be blocked off. Passengers should practice social distancing when possible. Passengers should not congregate when waiting for the shuttle.

Where's My Shuttle?

Wonder no more… University shuttles are outfitted with real-time tracking equipment. Simply go to the DoubleMap site on your computer or smartphone, or download the free smartphone app to see the buses on a map. Live tracking, arrival predictions, and proximity alerts are also available for all University bus lines.

Take Your Wheels On The Shuttle

Shuttles are cycle-friendly. Most University Shuttles have racks on the front that hold up to two bicycles. If you wish to use the bike rack, signal the driver that you are going to the front of the bus. You’re responsible for loading and unloading your bicycle but it’s a convenient way to get around town when you need to, or want to add exercise to your commute. (See the Transportation and Parking’s Bikes On Shuttles website for handy tips for loading and unloading your bicycle from a shuttle bus.)
