Guide to Riding

When waiting for the bus stand next to the Bus Stop Sign so that the driver can see you, otherwise the bus may drive past the stop. Buses will arrive within six minutes of scheduled arrival. Buses will only let people on and off at designated stops. 

Emergency Cancellations 

The Bus will run as scheduled except in the case of a snow or other emergency. Emergency cancellations will be posted on this website and sent out through campus email announcements.
