COVID-19 Transportation Policies and Procedures

Parking and Transportation Services has developed several strategies and procedures following the recommendations of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) in accordance with the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and state and local guidelines.

We have implemented the following safety and cleaning procedures:

  • Daily cleaning of rails, seats, handles and other areas of the bus with surface disinfectant
  • Bi-Weekly spraying of all buses and vehicles with a cleaning solution proven to kill and prevent the spread of COVID-19
  • Enforcing strict social distancing guidelines
  • Requiring all passengers to wear a mask or face covering
  • Installing a clear safety curtain to separate the bus driver and passenger
  • Installing signs and straps on the buses to enforce social distancing guidelines
  • Requiring all passengers to enter the front of the bus and exit through the back of the bus when applicable
  • Enforcing a maximum capacity on all buses at 25%

NOTE: We are constantly monitoring this policy and updating our policies and procedures to provide our riders and employees with a safe and healthy environment.  

 

Currently operating on Reduced and Sunday Service.

The LSU Tiger Trails Transit System is a safe, convenient, and free bus service for LSU students, faculty, staff and visitors, both on and off campus.  LSU contracts with First Transit to provide this service. Tiger Trails has improved features in place to increase safety and efficiency. With increased seating capacity and improved routes, our system will help to decrease vehicle congestion on and around campus. All buses are equipped with improved ventilation and bike racks to better serve passengers. All buses are equipped with global positioning devices, allowing passengers to monitor actual arrival times through real time visualization.

The following options are in place for passengers to monitor arrival and departure times of the Tiger Trails Transit System:

  1. Follow this link to view the TransLōc app on a web browser: www.lsu.transloc.com/ 
  2. TransLōc applications are available for iPhones, iPods, iPads, Android smartphones, and Android tablets free of charge.

The Tiger Trails Transit System also features Fixed-Rider Routes to better serve daily-use passengers with quick and efficient schedules. They run on a consistent schedule and buses stop only at established, pre-determined stops. These routes will follow regular schedules Monday through Friday, on weekends, in between semesters with abbreviated or suspended service, on holidays, and during the summer.

Any comments, questions, or feedback can be submitted through the TransLōc application, email us at parking@lsu.edu, or call us at (225) 578-5000. When submitting feedback, please include any applicable information such as bus number, route, stop, or time of incident.
