Please keep in mind that Traveller Transit use is a privilege. It is your responsibility to plan your evening so that you ensure safe transportation home. The buses will never, under any circumstances, operate at all after 2 am. The last bus leaving will only accommodate approximately 25 students, and will not return past the designated shift ending time regardless of circumstance. Traveller was created as a third chain of responsibility. It is your responsibility to stay sober and get home. If this first option fails, then it is your responsibility to find a sober friend or ride home. If this third option fails to prove successful, this is the intention of the Traveller program.
If you need a ride home on Wednesday, Friday or Saturday nights, head to a Traveller bus stop. The buses will follow the designated route between 10 PM and 2 AM on these nights, and will not under any circumstance deviate from the route.
Please know that the Traveller Transit buses will not take any more students than there are available seats. For your own safety, no student will be permitted onboard a bus without a seat for them. Thank you for understanding!
The Blue Line runs in the CITY has more stops closer to campus, while the Red Line runs in the COUNTRY and may be more convenient for those who live further out of town. The stops are marked by black benches at the transition points on campus.

PURPOSE: To create a system of accountability for students whose conduct within the Traveller system is not consistent with the values of the University. Our hope is that these students will model their behavior consistent with expectations of all within the University community.
WHO MAY GIVE A SANCTION: Sanctions can be given by Traveller Dispatchers, Dispatch Drivers, Express Bus Drivers, and Traveller Monitors.
DEFINITION OF TRAVELLER VIOLATION: Sanctions will be given to any students who violate established Traveller rules or behave in a way not consistent with stated University expectations as outlined in the Student Handbook when using dispatch or express service. The following are Traveller rules and examples of violations.
i. Traveller Expectations:
a. No Alcohol or unsealed beverages on Traveller
b. Treat Driver/Dispatcher/Monitor with respect
c. One person to Seat (No Standing in Aisles)
d. No Roughhousing / Fighting
ii. Examples of Violations:
a. Refusing to get off an overloaded van/bus when asked
b. Pushing/Shoving to such an extent that it causes harm to other students
c. Physical abuse of a driver/monitor/dispatcher
d. Verbal abuse of a driver/monitor/dispatcher
e. Anything else is left to the discretion of the Traveller Employee
CONSEQUENCES: The following are the consequences associated with each sanction. Any sanctions that are considered particularly egregious (determined by Traveller Chairs) may be forwarded to the SJC for further conduct action.
**Refusal to acknowledge or take care of the first sanction within four weeks of the date of issue will result in a second sanction.**
Traveller employees will be responsible for enforcing the conduct system. When a student violates Traveller policy, he/she will be asked to give their full name and all information for the sanction report form. FALSE IDENTIFICATION MAY BE CONSIDERED AN HONOR VIOLATION.
Any students who receives a third sanction and are suspended from Traveller for one calendar year will have their photos and information posted in the Traveller cubicle and on Express buses so that Traveller employees will be able to identify these individuals.
