COVID-19 Prevention: UB Buses and Shuttles

UB Parking and Transportation Services has implemented several guidelines and protocols to ensure a safe experience for our faculty, staff and students.

On this page:

Face Masks

  • All passengers on UB buses and shuttles are required to wear a face mask at all times.
  • UB Stampede and shuttle drivers and passengers are required to wear face coverings at all times.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

  • High-touch surfaces such as handrails and seat backs are wiped down periodically throughout the day.
  • Transit team members have been trained to use disinfecting fog to thoroughly sanitize campus shuttles.
  • Open windows (when feasible) to improve ventilation.

Car Sharing

Zipcar has upgraded its car-cleaning procedure with antiviral and antimicrobial solutions and has deployed periodic sanitizing procedures. 

Treat shared vehicle like other shared workstations. Clean and disinfect commonly touched spaces (e.g., steering wheels, handle bars, seats, door handles) before and after use.

Rear-Door Boarding on the UB Stampede

  • Temporarily, all passengers riding the UB Stampede buses will enter and exit from the rear door due to protective driver barriers at the front of the bus.
  • The UB Card swipe system has been suspended until further notice.
