COVID-19 Requirements

During COVID-19, boarding is restricted to UC San Diego students, faculty and staff. Passengers must show the driver their “green thumb” result from the daily symptom screener when boarding. If a printout is used, instead of a handheld device, a UC San Diego identification card is also required. Learn more about how we’re keeping passengers safe during COVID-19.
