    1. SAFETY TIPS

      University bus drivers take pride in their ability to prevent many accidents each day. You can help prevent injury by following these safety tips:

      • Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before boarding or exiting.
      • Stay back from the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop.
      • Unlike a school bus there is not a mandatory requirement for vehicles to stop behind the campus shuttles.
      • Do not walk between two stopped buses.

    2. LOST/STOLEN ITEMS

      1. Prior to departing from a bus or leaving a bus stop, please survey your area to make sure you have taken all of your belongings with you.

      2. The University Shuttle is not responsible for any personal items which are lost or stolen on any University operated shuttle bus or bus stop.
