The Lincoln College Shuttle operates on a fixed shuttle route that runs through historical downtown Lincoln and stops at a number of retail stores and restaurants located in and around Lincoln. Students can board/depart at the half circle drive in front of Heritage South Residence Hall and any of the locations on the schedule.
LC Shuttle Bus Policies & Behavioral Guidelines
The student shuttle service provides free transportation for students, faculty, and staff that provide a Lincoln College student or employee issued ID. Upon boarding the shuttle riders must sign their name and destination. Drivers are instructed to be firm on the ID policy.
All students, faculty, and staff riding the LC Shuttle have the right to expect a safe space waiting for the shuttle, a safe trip once on the shuttle, and reliable service. Lincoln College strives to make sure these three characteristics of high-quality transportation are consistently maintained.
In order to ensure the safety of all who ride the LC Shuttle, and in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct of Lincoln College, we would like to remind students, faculty, and staff of these behavioral expectations while riding or waiting for the LC Shuttle.
General rules for riding the shuttle:
Have your Lincoln College issued student or employee ID ready when boarding the shuttle bus.
Sign your name on the log and your destination and time.
No open food or drink, littering or smoking including e-cigarettes or vapors on the bus.
Drivers will not allow passengers to board and disembark the bus unless it is at an established stop.
Keep your volume down as not everyone shares your interest in music or conversation.
Please check all personal possessions before disembarking the shuttle. Lincoln College is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Lost-and-found items will be turned into the Office of Student Services.
Physically aggressive behavior toward passengers or drivers, including pushing or forcing one’s way onto the bus will not be tolerated
Blocking, leaning on, holding open, or attempting to open doors will not be tolerated.
Any form of physical contact with a bus driver will not be tolerated.

Above all else, please demonstrate common courtesy and respect for those around you, and allow all members of the Lincoln College community to get the most out of the LC Shuttle service.
