General MIT Shuttle Rules:

  • Federal regulations require all passengers to be behind the white line before the bus may depart.
  • Do not smoke on the vehicle.
  • Do not walk in front of the vehicle after exiting.
  • Do not push people when you enter or exit the vehicle.
  • Do not impede the driver from closing the doors, at any time or for any reason.
  • Skateboards, folding kick scooters, and folding bicycles (with and without a motor) are allowed on most MIT campus shuttles (Tech Shuttle, Boston Daytime, EZRide, and SafeRide) provided the following safety precautions are observed:
    • Only foldable scooters and bikes (designed to fold for storage) can be brought onboard.
    • Keep your skateboard, bike, or scooter secured in front of you at your seat at all times.
    • Do not take up additional seats with your skateboard, bike, or scooter.
    • Do not let your skateboard, bike, or scooter obstruct or take up space in the aisle.
    • Keep in mind that if your skateboard, bike, or scooter is not secured in front of you at your seat, it can impede other riders or shuttle operators who need to move through the vehicle.

Note: 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. If a shuttle rider with a scooter, bike, or skateboard is not complying with the safety precautions, the shuttle operator may ask that rider to either comply or disembark.
