Health and safety measures have been implemented to keep T Bus riders safe in the confined space of a bus.
- How to adjust occupancy from completely full buses to social distancing?
- How to provide more buses on routes to make up for lesser capacity on each bus?
We got creative and reconfigured the T Bus, looked at ridership on each route, what other options those students have, and made tough decisions.
Here are the guiding procedures:
|OLD Route||NEW Route|
|Neyland Express, Ag Express, and the Hill||One route through campus from Ag to the Hill|
|Neyland Express||A direct bus from Sorority Village to Gate 21 at Neyland Stadium. The residents can only park in Sorority Village and MUST have transportation to campus.|
|Access and Link||NO Change to these services and remember both serve the Fort Sanders neighborhood for those with disabilities.|
|Late Nite||NO Changes – this also serves the Fort Sanders neighborhood at night.|
|The Fort||NO SERVICE||Unable to offer this route Fall 2020 due to COVID19 route restructuring|
|JIAM||NO SERVICE||Unable to offer this route Fall 2020 due to COVID19 route restructuring|
|ORNL/PSCC||NO SERVICE||ORNL is not having Research Interns and PSCC is primarily online so the service is suspended for Fall 2020|
