Weather Delays and Cancelations

: Any time the University announces a weather-related delay of two hours or more. Actual service will begin at least 30 min. prior to the end of the delay. Example: if the University is to open at 10 a.m., all buses will begin service starting at 9:30 a.m. This is to allow road crews and the Borough to remove snow and treat the roads after a weather event.

Cancelations: There may be times when the University has determined that conditions are such that the campus is closed. During these closures there will be no bus services provided. This determination means that a significant weather event is making conditions unsafe for travel.
