LC Shuttle Bus Policies & Behavioral Guidelines:

The student shuttle service provides free transportation for students that provide a Lincoln College student issued ID. Upon boarding the shuttle riders must sign their name and destination. Drivers are instructed to be firm on the ID policy.

All students riding the shuttle have the right to expect a safe space waiting for the shuttle, a safe trip once on the shuttle, and reliable service. Lincoln College strives to make sure these three characteristics of high-quality transportation are consistently maintained.

In order to ensure the safety of all who ride the LC Shuttle, and in accordance with the Student Handbook of Lincoln College, we would like to remind students of these behavioral expectations while riding or waiting for the LC Shuttle.

General rules for riding the shuttle:

  • Have your Lincoln College issued student or employee ID ready when boarding the shuttle bus.
  • Sign your name on the log and your destination and time.
  • Remove all trash before exiting the shuttle
  • No open food or drink, littering or smoking including e-cigarettes or vapors on the bus.
  • Drivers will not allow passengers to board and disembark the bus unless it is at an established stop.
  • Keep your volume down as not everyone shares your interest in music or conversation.
  • Please check all personal possessions before disembarking the shuttle. Lincoln College is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Lost-and-found items will be turned into the Office of Student Services.
  • Physically aggressive behavior toward passengers or drivers, including pushing or forcing one’s way onto the bus will not be tolerated
  • Blocking, leaning on, holding open, or attempting to open doors will not be tolerated.
  • Any form of physical contact with a shuttle driver will not be tolerated.
  • Any form of inflammatory, disrespectful, or otherwise distracting speech directed toward a shuttle driver or fellow passengers will not be tolerated.
  • Possession of open containers of alcohol is forbidden.
  • Banging on or attempting to board a moving shuttle bus will not be tolerated.
  • Damaging, defacing or in any way marring the interior or exterior of the bus will not be tolerated.
  • Any costs associated with repairs or cleaning will be charged to the responsible individual.
  • No pets allowed (only service animals will be allowed)
  • The shuttle is not intended to be a personal transportation service. If you have an off-campus job, it is your responsibility to make sure you have reliable transportation to and from your off-campus job. The LC shuttle service is not responsible for making sure you arrive to work on time.

Above all else, please demonstrate common courtesy and respect for those around you, and allow all members of the Lincoln College community to get the most out of the LC Shuttle service.

Failure to adhere to the standards listed above may result in one or more of the following:

  • Removal from the shuttle
  • Referral to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action
  • Prohibition from further use of the shuttle
