What is the Bobcat Shuttle schedule?

Bobcat Shuttle service and ridership is continuously evaluated, and adjustments are made as necessary.  The most current shuttle schedule is available at Bobcat Shuttle.

How are Bobcat Shuttles protecting against the spread of COVID-19?


Bobcat Shuttles are placing an even greater emphasis on disinfecting high-touch surfaces during daily cleaning, posting reminders for riders with CDC guidance on stopping the spread of germs, and communicating with local public health and emergency management officials to implement the latest COVID-19 guidance. In addition, riders should be aware of the following precautions.


Seating on Bobcat Shuttles is being reduced by approximately 50 percent to control crowding and allow more space between passengers.

Rear Boarding

To protect operators and patrons, the Bobcat Shuttle will be boarding from the rear door only. Please allow passengers to exit the bus before you board.

Allow Extra Time

Please plan for delays on certain routes by leaving early and allowing extra time to accommodate the additional safety measures and modified schedules. Note that arrival time estimates on the real-time GPS bus tracking system may not be accurate.

Extra Shuttle Rider Precautions

For those who are symptom-free and not part of a high-risk group, these are additional safeguards to consider when using public transportation:

  • Consider commuting during off-peak hours
  • When available, take a seat instead of holding onto poles and handles
  • Once at your destination, wash hands or use sanitizer
  • Maintain at least six feet of social distancing from other individuals
  • Cover coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands)
  • Refrain from shaking hands
  • Wear face coverings when social distancing cannot be maintained or when in frequent contact with others
