Effective, Monday, May 30, 2016, the South Side Shuttle will no longer stop at the Manville Student Housing Unit. The South Side Shuttle will stop at the bus stop on Shattuck Avenue @ Durant Avenue. The arrival/departure times will not change; see the South Side Shuttle Schedule.

This will leave Manville passengers with a one block walk, to the housing unit, but the area is well lit, with heavy traffic.

We've just made a change to improve your Night Safety Services this Fall. Because the fixed route shuttle service now ends at 3 AM, Door-To-Door service begins at 3.00 AM instead of 4:00 AM.  Make your request via bearwalk.berkeley.edu or 510/642-9255 no earlier than 15 minutes before you need pickup. See the current fixed route schedules for North and South Side Shuttles on the Night Safety Shuttle page.

This week, the Night Safety Program changed BearWALK escort service end time from 4:00 to 3:00 a.m. We take our last BearWALK request at 2:30 a.m. now.

During our pilot program all last year, we realized that the shuttles and door to door service provide better service during that hour, so the student-employee CSOs can go home and study or sleep! Thank you for telling a friend about the time change. If you have any questions, please call the BearWALK dispatchers after 7:30 p.m. at (510) 642-9255.

During Finals Week, the only change to service is that there will be more shuttles available for more Door-to-Door rides from 4:00 AM to 6:00 AM.

Remember, before 4 AM, follow their routes and pace yourself to get to a stop near you by checking bearwalk.berkeley.edu/shuttles for a real-time map.

As usual, the last pick-up request for Door to Door Service is 5:30 AM.

Night Safety Services are here for you during Reading/Review/Recitation Week, a.k.a. "Dead Week," same as they are throughout the year when classes are in session. There are no changes to shuttle service. We hope you use BearWalk.berkeley.edu/shuttles, or call (510) 642-9255 when you're on campus studying late!
