Blue Route Shuttle Will Run Until 9:30 p.m. Starting June 3

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

As an additional commute option for employees who use the free after-hours taxi service — which ends on May 31 — a Blue Route shuttle bus will make additional runs between approximately 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., starting on Monday, June 3. A review of taxi-service usage found the majority of rides took place between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., so the extended schedule will cover this time period. The same route and stops as those employed during regular hours will be used, as well as the NextBus notification system. Following is the schedule for the extended runs:

Bldg. 65 (downhill): 7:28, 8:16, and 9:04 p.m.
BART: 7:40, 8:28, and 9:16 p.m.
Bldg. 65 (uphill): 7:52, 8:40, and 9:28 p.m.
Bldgs. 62/66: 8:04, 8:52 p.m.

New Safety Campaign Reminds Riders: Buckle-Up!

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Roll With ItYou may notice something new at your feet as you wait for a Berkeley Lab shuttle bus. All around the Lab, brightly painted signs on the pavement remind riders to “Buckle-Up!” while riding the shuttles. Soon you’ll see posters and stickers–part of a new EH&S campaign reminding riders to use seat belts on the shuttles. A tragic collision in San Francisco last year, in which a passenger was killed after being thrown from a UCSF shuttle bus, underscores the importance of wearing a seat belt. While that shuttle did not have seat belts, all Berkeley Lab shuttles do, and you are asked to “click it” while on board. For tips on traveling around the Lab – whether on foot, by bike, in a car, or on the shuttle – check out the new “Ride Safely” Web site. While you’re there, complete the EH&S shuttle seat-belt survey and you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win one of 25 Bay View Café coupons (worth $8). EH&S encourages everyone to think of safety first as you move around the Lab.
