The Rutgers University New Brunswick/Piscataway Campus Bus/Shuttle Service uses lift-equppied accessible buses on various routes to provide reliable and safe transportation within or between the College Avenue, Busch, Livingston, Cook & Douglass Campuses. Accessible bus service is available to all members of the Rutgers University community. The Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) at Rutgers provides a comprehensive transit system which serves all destinations on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses. Any student requiring accommodations for transportation or parking needs to apply through the Accessible Transportation and Parking page, and will also need their treating provider to submit supporting documentation.
- For students who require accessible transportation who cannot utilize the typical campus bus service for a particular reason due to a temporary or permanent disability, Rutgers offers a paratransit van on the New Brunswick campus only. To be considered for this additional van service, students must complete the Transportation Request Form.
- Student's will need to ask their physical or medical provider to submit the Certification of Medical Need.
- The student will receive provisional van services for two weeks pending the receipt of the Certification of Medical Need from their physician.
- It is the student's responsibility to ensure that their physician completes and submits the Certification of Medical Need form to allow for continuous transportation after the provisional two week period.
- Upon receipt of Certification of Medical Need form and satisfactory review, the coordinator of the van service will contact the student to discuss continued transportation needs and make appropriate arrangements.
- For full details on eligibility, policies and procedures for the Rutger's University Paratransit Van Services go to their online manual.
