On-Campus Transport (The Cart)

Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) provides on-campus shuttle service for persons who are physically unable to walk to campus locations. All ride requests are subject to availability of carts and drivers. Transportation to and from off-campus locations is not available.

Please note: This accommodation must be approved by an Accessibility Advisor (for students) or ADA Coordinator (for faculty and staff) and will depend on the symptoms and severity of the person’s disability.

Request Process

  1. Online cart ride requests must be submitted via the ARC website (click on the red "Cart Request" button), including one-time or ongoing semester requests.
  2. Requests should be submitted at least one to two days prior to the scheduled ride.

COVID Safety Protocols

COVID safety protocols have been implemented, which include a Plexi-glass barrier between seats, only one rider allowed per seat, and all riders must wear a mask.

Guidelines

  • Last-minute or same-day online or call-in requests will be subject to availability of carts and drivers and may not be provided.
  • During heavy ride request periods, and congested foot traffic, especially between classes, ARC cannot guarantee that riders will be picked up or dropped off at their exact scheduled times.
  • Riders must notify ARC as soon as possible of any ride cancellations, delays, or changes.
  • When possible, cart drivers will wait up to five minutes after the scheduled time for riders to show up for their ride. However, during heavy ride periods drivers may not be able to wait.
  • After three rider no-shows, subsequent semester rides will be cancelled.
  • Friends or family may not accompany the rider.
  • ARC cart rides may not be used in lieu of an emergency responder to transport injured or sick.
  • Regular operating hours are Monday through Friday 7:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Individuals who need rides after 5:15 p.m. may utilize the Campus Connection Shuttle.

Campus visitors who are physically unable to walk to campus locations must contact the persons organizing the event – at least five days in advance – to arrange for cart rides with ARC.
