*For the Fall 2020 semester, ride slots have been adjusted to 20 minutes, from 15 (ie. 7:10 - 7:30 - 7:50). This is to allow our drivers ample time to disinfect their vans between trips. In accordance with the UMass Amherst Community Agreement, we require all our passengers and drivers to follow COVID-19 public safety guidelines, including wearing a mask at all times in our vans. For the health and safety of our drivers and passengers, we require that passengers cancel existing rides and refrain from arranging new ones if any COVID symptoms are detected, or if in contact to anyone who has tested positive.
