COVID19 and UT Bus Service

COVID-19 is impacting T Bus riders will notice new safety measures, limited seating capacity, and route changes.


  • NO Route Changes for Accessible Bus Transportation
  • No Route Changes for Late Nite service (this does serve The Fort Sanders neighborhood on the same route as last year)
  • Route changes
    • Neyland Express split into Ag/Hill and NEW Sorority Village Express
    • NO JIAM, ORNL/PSCC, or Fort routes this fall

The significant impact of COVID-19, particularly limitations imposed on passenger capacities due to social distancing requires us to concentrate our T bus services to those areas with the highest demand and needs.

Safety measures

  • Masks and face coverings will be required on the T Link and the T Bus
  • Buses will operate at half seated capacity to encourage social distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning measures will be in place
  • Riders are asked to please follow guidelines posted on signage
