Effective immediately, MB Shuttles will increase seating capacities from 8 to 11 seats per run. Seats on one side of the bus will maintain 6′ of distance from the next rider; seats on the other side will provide for 3′ of distance, which is the metric UCSF shuttles have been using for a few months. This gives riders a choice if a shuttle bus is at its 8-capacity of either waiting for the next one, or being seated 3′ apart for the 10-12 min. ride. As more and more riders are vaccinated, the risks, when remaining masked and diligent, continue to decrease.
Remember: all riders must be masked both at the bus stop and while on the bus.
We continue enhanced cleaning protocols that include:
- Using CDC-recommended products and processes to clean and disinfect buses daily
- Buses are cleaned before each shift (morning and evening)
- We’re following ventilation recommendations from the A/C and vehicle manufacturers for maximum air circulation-refreshing during service
