LBNL will have a modified shuttle service beginning June 1st. During shuttle service hours (7AM-8PM), staff can request a shuttle to pick-up and drop-off riders at existing shuttle stops, including:
all on-site stops,
UC campus stops,
JBEI and Potter St facilities stops, and
Ashby, Rockridge, Downtown Berkeley, and North Berkeley BART stations.
Shuttles will dispatch to pick up one to three passengers at a time, ensuring social distancing is maintained. Non-usable seats will be folded up with signage not to use the seats. Rides must be requested using the TripShot app or online at lbnl.tripshot.com. Berkeley Lab staff can access Ride Request guidance here.
Cleaning – Cleaning of interior touch points and previously occupied seats will be performed after each use.
