Our off-campus safety shuttle staff will make every effort to ensure that the shuttle operates according to schedule. However, if shuttle service is delayed or disrupted due to unforeseen circumstances, Mills College at Northeastern University will not be responsible for the reimbursement or provision of alternate transportation. The same is true if the shuttle is at maximum capacity and cannot board additional riders due to seating limit.

The off-campus safety shuttle is governed by the Department of Transportation and California Highway Patrol, who have mandated that ridership is not to exceed vehicle capacity. Community members should be prepared with alternate transportation plans should the shuttle be unavailable or at maximum ridership. Contact Public Safety at 510.430.5555 for shuttle schedule updates, and call 511 for AC Transit public transportation information.
