Shuttle Schedule

Mills Shuttle will not operate Spring Break: March 23–27, 2015. Regular service will resume Saturday, March 28, 2015.

During the academic year, a current schedule is also posted at the campus shuttle stop inside the shuttle information case.

Advise driver upon boarding if you need to go to Kaiser Hospital. You will need to call 510.430.5555 to schedule a return pickup. The gatehouse will advise the driver to pick you up on their next run. At times you may experience a wait at Kaiser Hospital due to heavy traffic or other factors beyond our control. If preferred, contact Friendly Cab at 510.536.3000 and have the ride billed to your student account. (Vouchers are at the security gatehouse.)

If the bus is running late, contact the Gatehouse at 510.430.5555 for schedule updates.

UC Berkeley to Mills College
Board bus at UCB Sproul Plaza at corner of Bancroft and Telegraph Avenue. Pickup at Rockridge Bart (wait on west side of College Avenue near Ac Transit stop).


Mills College shuttle staff will make every effort to ensure that the shuttle operates according to schedule. However, if the shuttle service is disrupted due to unforeseen circumstances, Mills College will not be responsible for providing alternative transportation. The same is true if the shuttle is at maximum capacity and cannot let additional riders board due to seat capacity. We are governed by the Department of Transportation and the California Highway Patrol who state that we may only transport 44 riders at a time. You should be prepared with an alternative transportation plan should the shuttle be unavailable or if it is at maximum capacity. Call 511 for AC Transit information, or contact 510.430.5555 Public Safety for schedule updates.

Ticket Purchase location

Cashier/Sage Hall: Monday–Friday, 9:30 am–1:00 pm and 2:00 pm–3:30 pm.
