General Safety

Riders can help maintain safety by following these rules:

  • Be seated as soon as possible.
  • Federal regulations require all passengers are behind the white line before the bus may depart.
  • Do not smoke in the bus.
  • Do not walk in front of the bus after exiting.
  • Do not push people when you enter or exit the bus.
  • Do not impede the driver from closing the doors of the bus, at any time or for any reason.
  • Please do not bring bikes onto the bus and refer to the scooter policy for childrens bikes.
  • Transporting large objects is prohibited on the bus.
  • Dogs are not permitted on Harvard vehicles, except for service animals.

Drivers will enforce all regulations. Service will be refused to anyone who does not comply with regulations or whose behavior is disruptive or hazardous to passenger and vehicle safety.

    Scooter Policy

    Manual and electric scooters as well as children's bicycles are allowed on all Harvard Shuttles, but please keep in mind that buses can become crowded so refrain from boarding with a scooter if there’s not enough space. Consider scootering to your destination or simply wait for the next bus. When onboard, make sure to keep the scooter out of the way and secure. Fold them whenever possible. A scooter can be a tripping hazard and a falling scooter can injure someone. Gasoline powered scooters are not permitted on any Harvard transit vehicle.
