COVID-19 Updates

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 further restrictions on the number of passengers per bus this fall. Our current and anticipated policies are listed below.

Fall Transit Policies

  • Face coverings required for drivers and passengers
  • No more than 40 passengers per bus
  • Enter using front door
  • Exit using rear door
  • When possible, maintain distance from other passengers and the driver
  • If a bus reaches capacity of 40 people, it will bypass stops until the number of passengers drops below the capacity limitations

Service Updates

We are constantly monitoring occupancy and adjusting service levels. Check bus schedules regularly for the most current information and real time bus locations.

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

Bus Cleaning and Disinfecting

Extensive bus cleaning and disinfecting 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 is another 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 Permits

Parking permit registration closed July 8. Customers who registered for parking had their permits mailed to them mid-July. Customers who did not register may log beginning Aug. 1 to purchase permits for available locations.

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.

Short Term Parking Available for Customers without Parking Permits

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!

Moving Into Residence Halls

  • Fall Move In Map – No parking in Fire Lanes, at the end of parking rows, or in a manner that restricts emergency access or the flow of traffic.
  • One hour loading/unloading in areas designated on the move in map only.

2020-2021 permits are valid in Modified Summer/Break lots as soon as they are issued. Check your license plate registration then print fall permit receipt from My Parking Account for use until hangtag arrives.

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!
