MIT shuttle COVID-19 policies and procedures:
Face coverings are required for passengers and drivers; drivers also wear gloves.
To create physical distancing, no passengers are permitted to use aisle seats; this is indicated with decals posted on the seats.
Please fill seats starting at the back of the bus and progressing toward the front. When disembarking, allow the passengers at the front to disembark first. The process should then progress toward passengers at the back.

Shuttles are cleaned daily using a COVID-approved fogging process along with enhanced cleaning procedures.
