Dealing with Delays

  1. To find out whether a bus is late or when it will arrive at your stop, use the bus tracking application or call the Safe-Way Bus Company dispatcher at 651.451.1375.
  2. Transfers can be difficult when buses are late. Let your driver know if you plan to transfer between buses at St. Catherine’s. Our drivers can contact each other via radio and will accommodate transfers as well as possible.

Bus Guidelines

  1. The ACTC bus is a free transportation service for students, faculty, and staff at Augsburg, Hamline, Macalester, St. Catherine, and St. Thomas.
  2. There is no cost to use the ACTC bus. Riders may be required to show a university ID card to prove eligibility.
  3. All buses are accessible. Passengers with accessibility needs should plan to follow the posted bus routes and do not need to make special arrangements.
  4. All buses are equipped with bicycle racks. Any passenger transporting a bicycle is responsible for securing it to the rack.
