Purchasing a Seat
Reservations should be made as soon as your plans become definite, as some shuttles have been filling up. You will receive a confirmation email once your reservation has been received and space availability has been checked. The shuttle fee will be added to your student account. There is no "ticket" to board the bus; your name will be included on a passenger check list.
