Usage Guidelines

All schedules times are approximate. Timetables and other information on this page are subject to change. We make every effort to post an accurate schedule; however, travel times may change as a result of school activities and traffic conditions including road construction and inclement weather. Please allow for extra travel time during these instances.

Shuttles are a free service for students, faculty and staff, with presentation of a valid Mercy ID card.

Riding rules

• Have the required Mercy ID card ready when boarding the shuttle bus. This ensures that the shuttle will remain on schedule and not delay fellow passengers. Drivers are instructed to be firm on the ID policy especially for the Bronx campus shuttle.

• Allow passengers to exit before boarding the bus. If you stand to the left of the door, passengers can disembark to the right, and it will reduce boarding time.

• When capacity reaches standing room, move toward the back of the bus for others to get on. For safety reasons, stay behind the yellow line and avoid standing or sitting in the stairwells.

• No open food or drink, littering or smoking allowed on the bus.

• Drivers will not allow passenger to board and disembark the bus unless it is at an established stop.

• Keep your volume down as not everyone shares your interest in music or conversation.

• Please check for all personal possessions before disembarking the vehicle.

If you want to share some feedback about your shuttle experience, please share it with Transportation Services and not directly with the driver. Some comments can make it stressful for the driver. With safety in mind, any feedback is better shared when the driver is not driving on a route. Contact Transportation Services at transportation@mercy.edu, 914-888-5230.
