Fall 2022 Temporary Service Modifications

Changes in UMass Transit Bus Service Announced

Even though UMass Transit Services has been working continuously to recruit and train new drivers over the last year, it has not reached its projected driver hours for fall 2022. As a result, actual available driver hours are not adequate to ensure reliable service on all routes. UMass Transit has reviewed each route to ensure it can continue to provide the most effective service across its service area, while attempting to minimize the impact on passengers. Please be advised of these updates for the rest of the semester:

  • Effective starting on Monday September 19, the Route 34 Northbound Campus Shuttle will end operation on weekdays at 12:15 p.m. (earlier than previously scheduled). The campus currently operates two campus shuttles over the same roads, but in opposite directions. The Route 35 Southbound Campus Shuttle will not be impacted, so passengers will still have an afternoon campus shuttle option covering the same areas as Route 34.  
  • Effective starting on Saturday September 24, the Route 33 Puffer’s Pond/Shopper Shuttle will operate on Saturdays using the Sunday schedule (running every 80 minutes). 

Campus Accessible Van Services are not impacted and will remain available to members of the campus community with mobility issues.

UMass Transit continues to recruit and train new student drivers. It offers paid training, frequent raises, flexible hours, and promotional positions with real-world supervisory, management and technical experience. Apply here if you’re interested in joining the team at UMass Transit!
