Lose something on
the bus?

Bus drivers turn in all abandoned items at the end of the day. The PTS front desk should have them available to claim the day AFTER the item is lost.


Confused about the bus layover?

Riders will notice certain points on the bus route when the drivers stop for a short period of time (usually, 5-10 minutes). This time, called a bus layover, is a necessary function of transit management to ensure labor compliance, to manage on-time departures, and to give drivers needed restroom breaks. On the Campus Connector, the layover spot is outside the St. Paul Student Center.
