Areas of Study
  1. While on buses, everyone – students, employees, and drivers must wear masks.
  2. Capacity will be added to the extent possible to allow for physical distancing while maintaining service levels.
  3. Additional interventions – regular cleaning, introducing fresh air, installing hand sanitizer stations, and optimizing routes to reduce time on bus – will provide additional layers of protection.
  • Windows will be open to introduce fresh air.
  • Masks must be worn at all times while on the bus.
  • Campus access credentials (e.g. daily health assessment) checked before boarding.
  • Sanitize hands when boarding/disembarking.
  • Bus capacity will be reduced – and frequencies increased – to allow for social distancing.
  • Maintain social distance at bus stops.


Maintain universal and proper use of masks while on bus.

Hand Sanitation

Install and utilize hand sanitizer stations at bus entry.

Trip Duration

Shorten time on bus as much as possible through eliminating/consolidating stops, adding buses, and route design.


Clean and disinfect buses at end of day, between routes.


Reduce capacity and increase physical distance to the extent possible.


Protocols and PPE can help protect drivers and monitors who spend prolonged periods of time on buses.


Increase ventilation and airflow to the extent possible.
