UCSF Transit Operations Update: COVID-19

Your safety is our top priority.

At UCSF Transportation Services, we are closely monitoring news of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In these challenging times, we are committed to providing clean and safe shuttle services to the UCSF community.

On Friday, March 6, the San Francisco Department of Public Health issued new recommendations aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 that included information specific to transit providers.

Your safety is our top priority, and we are taking actions that exceed the guidelines set forth by the health department.

Recently, we stepped up daily cleaning of our shuttles that includes wiping down and disinfecting all high-touch surface areas. In addition, we thoroughly clean all shuttles, both interior and exterior, on a weekly basis. Our shuttles are clean and safe for everyone to ride. We also advise passengers to stay informed and know what steps you can take to protect yourself.
