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 board additional riders due to seating limit.

The Mills Shuttle is governed by the Department of Transportation and California Highway Patrol who have mandated a ridership of no more than 44 riders at a time. Community members should be prepared with alternate transportation plans should the shuttle be unavailable or is at maximum capacity. Call 511 for AC Transit information, or contact 510.430.5555 Public Safety for schedule updates.
