Safe Riding Protocols

Physical distancing on Yale shuttles is critical to the health and safety of the Yale community. As a result, shuttle passenger capacity and routes will be extremely limited. Review additional protocols on this page.

Be Aware of Capacity Limitations

  • Shuttles will operate at approximately 50% of normal rider capacity to ensure physical distancing.
  • Further, temporary changes to existing shuttle routes may be required due to capacity limitations.

Follow New Passenger Guidelines

  • Shuttle passengers are asked to maintain at least 6 feet of space from others at all shuttle stops.
  • No standees will be allowed.
  • Passengers will be required to board and exit the rear door of all two-door buses.
  • Masks must be worn at all times by passengers and the driver when the vehicle is occupied.
  • To maintain physical distance, only use the window seats on each row of the bus.

Stay Informed About Safety Measures

  • Air circulation has been set to “fresh air” to allow for proper circulation of air flow.
  • Passenger barriers have been installed for safety and should not be handled.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting of high touch point areas are cleaned at the end of each loop, and the entire vehicle is cleaned and disinfected nightly.

Plan Ahead

  • Check online before planning your trip, to be sure your route is available.
  • Consider alternatives, such as personal bikes, to get to and from Campus.
