Penn State Transportation Services To Resume Operations July 6

Penn State Transportation Services is set to resume its on-campus operations beginning Monday, July 6.

The Campus Shuttle will return to regular summer service, as the College Avenue route will serve stops every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shuttles will be operating at a reduced capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic, and riders are encouraged to only use these services for “essential trips.”

Normal campus parking regulations will be in effect for all campus parking areas and users, which include faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Faculty and student permit holders will only be able to park in their assigned areas from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

Temporary ParkMobile Commuter parking permit holders will only be allowed to park in the commuter lots — Jordan East, Stadium West, and Porter North — during weekday daytime hours.

The Transportation Services Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, while Fleet Operations will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Additionally, Fleet vehicle returns will operate 24 hours every day. Penn State stated that reduced hours will allow employees to thoroughly clean high-contact surfaces.

Safety protocols for all Transporation Services staff and customers include, but are not limited to, wearing a mask, floor markings outlining social distancing guidelines, and limited capacity in all shuttles and buildings. Additionally, high-contact points in all buildings and shuttles will be sanitized multiple times throughout the day.

Earlier this summer, CATABUS announced it would resume operation of several routes, including the Red Link and Blue Loop. CATA riders are also required to wear face masks and social distance when possible.
