Please note that all rides are round trip. For example, do not plan to be dropped off at the Walmart by a friend and then take the Shuttle home, as it may be full. Priority for Shuttle rides is given to Williams College students. Guests of students may ride if space permits, at the discretion of the Shuttle drivers. Babies are not allowed. The capacity of the shuttle is 10 students plus the driver. We recommend arriving at the designated stops at least 15 minutes early, as the driver will depart as soon as all seats are taken.

If weather is unsafe to drive in, the shuttle will be cancelled for that day, possibly with no prior warning.
