Returning this Fall

It’s time to plan for the upcoming fall semester!

Some things may be different when you return and we want to make sure you have the latest information about our services so you can get around campus hassle free when the new semester begins.

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. At the same time, we are dedicated to providing the very best service to you under even the most challenging circumstances.

We anticipate changes in the way people get around campus this fall, which could include continued restrictions on the number of passengers on buses. We understand more people may want to use personal vehicles, bikes or other single person modes to get to their destinations, and we want to support the choice that is best for your health and safety.

We want you to know we remain committed to serving and protecting you. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.

Transit

We do not yet know if there will be restrictions on the number of passengers per bus this fall. Our current policies are listed below. These may or may not be extended through the fall semester.


Rider Policy

  • Face covering required for all bus riders
  • No more than 20 people per bus
  • Enter and exit using rear door
  • Maintain distance from other passengers
  • If a bus reaches capacity of 20 people, it will bypass remaining stops on the route until it reaches the designated on-campus stop
  • Transit will monitor and dispatch additional buses as needed

For additional face covering info, see university Standard Administrative Procedure and FAQs

Bus Cleaning

  • Extensive bus cleaning with products and methods prescribed by the CDC for reducing the spread of illness.
  • If you are not feeling well and especially if you are running a fever, please do not board the buses.

Parking

If you are concerned about riding the bus, parking may be the best option for your added security. We have the capacity to support more parkers this year and invite you to either purchase a parking permit or to use hourly paid parking.

Parking Registration is Open!

You may register for parking now thru July 8. Login online to select the locations you prefer.

Polo Rd. Garage (PRG) is our newest facility with over 1,700 spaces near the Emerging Technologies Building. Remember, most students will get assigned parking on West Campus and either walk, bike or bus to their classes and other destinations.

Hourly Parking!

We do expect hourly parking to fill up fast in many locations. Do not plan on paid hourly parking as your primary strategy for accessing campus. Paid parking will also be offered this fall in the new Polo Rd. Garage (PRG) Paid parking will no longer be offered in Lot 51; it will be moved into PRG.

Check out real-time occupancy for paid parking in garages so you know before you go by checking to see if there will be space when you get to campus!

Additional Mobility Options

In addition to buses, we offer a variety of mobility options that support all Aggies in being sustainable, including car share, ride share and bike share.

We encourage you to consider all options, keep a multi-modal mindset and have a Plan B! We will continue to update this site as information about fall transportation becomes more widely available. We look forward to welcoming you to campus this fall!
