Transit Rider Responsibilities

Transit riders have responsibilities. This code of conduct applies to all riders.

Rider Rules & Responsibilities

Do not distract the driver or bother others
Interfering with the safe operation of a transit vehicle is not only dumb, but hazardous to you and everyone else 

No Smoking!
There is no smoking on campus, including University buses and paratransit vehicles (including e-cigarettes). 

Make the ride comfortable for everyone 
Designated seats at the front of every bus are reserved for seniors and customers with disabilities. Please surrender your seat to these customers when they board.

Use headphones and respect others' privacy
Groove, jam, rock out – just realize that it’s your own soundtrack. Don’t share it with others.

Speak quietly and Watch your language
If you talk on your phone, remember that you’ve got a built-in audience. Be mindful of your language, keep your voice low and your call brief.Using profanity or derogatory statements is not tolerated on buses or trains. 

Keep it clean
Respect those who will ride after you. Keep your feet off the seats and take litter off with you when you leave.

No shirt, no shoes, no service
Just like in stores and other businesses, customers without shirts or shoes will be refused service.

No eating or drinks in uncovered containers
You’re welcome to bring your morning coffee or lunch with you. Just make sure it’s in a sealed container – and take the container off the bus with you when you leave.

Pet carriers are required
Pets are welcome on buses and trains as long as they are kept in animal carriers. Service animals are exempt.
