Instructions for Riders

Shuttle stops are marked with this sign: Bus sign image

  • Off-site shuttle stops are often shared with other transit agencies. Remember to wave at the bus driver as the bus approaches so that the driver knows you want to board the LBL bus.
  • For safety reasons, shuttle bus drivers can only pick-up and drop-off passengers at designated LBL shuttle stops.
  • Passengers must hold on at all times when walking to a seat or standing while the shuttle is in motion or stopped.
  • Shuttle services are for Berkeley Lab employees and guests with business on the Lab site. All riders should have their credentials or ID’s out and ready to be shown when boarding buses off-site.
  • Acceptable ID’s for shuttle access to the Lab include an official badge issued by LBL, DOE or UCOP. UC Berkeley student and faculty ID badge when doing business at the Lab are accepted.
  • Guests are required to present a visitor bus pass. See Site Access for more information
  • Shuttle buses operate Monday through Friday, except on Lab holidays.
