Important Notices


General Information

  • Face masks or appropriate face coverings are to be worn at all times on campus busses, including bus routes to and from campus. Masks will be required at bus stops where social distancing cannot be maintained: Campus Face Covering Policy & Exemptions.
  • Although many classes may occur virtually or in a hybrid environment, access to campus remains an important part of your experience at Texas Tech. Your physical safety and well-being are a high priority and we are working to ensure the best possible experience.
  • In order to meet the demands of an extended class schedule, bussing schedules will be extended to assist students in getting to the academic core of campus. Additionally, bus frequencies will be adjusted to help reduce the number of passengers present on each bus.
  • Signage will be placed throughout the buses and at bus stops to serve as reminders for social distancing and to provide other important information for our students.
  • For the latest updates on Transportation & Parking Services visit www.parking.ttu.edu.

Summer II

  • Most courses during Summer II will remain in an online format and many employees continue to work remotely. While a limited number of students and employees will be present on campus, the Transportation Fee is not being assessed. As a result, transit options such as bus service, Raider Ride and employee courtesy shuttle will continue to be suspended for Summer II.
  • Faculty/staff who have an R-lot permit can park in any R lot in area reserved parking. Please note that reserved spaces will be enforced as usual.
  • Permits for employees utilizing payroll deduction have already been renewed for the new permit year.
  • Last year's permits for those employees not utilizing payroll deduction will continue to be honored until the renewal process can be completed. More information about those renewals will be sent in the coming days.
  • Commuter and residence hall lots require a Summer II parking permit. Permits can be purchased at www.parking.ttu.edu or in person at 407 Flint Ave, Room 145.
  • Fire lanes, disability spaces, reserved spaces, and no parking zones will be enforced as usual.
  • In an effort to maintain a pedestrian-friendly campus, entry stations will resume modified operations to limit traffic within the core of campus. Only employees with an R permit, vendors and visitors may access the campus core 7:30am-5:30pm M-F.

Fall 2020

  • As students, employees and visitors return to campus this fall, it is more important than ever that we provide a pedestrian friendly campus core. Reducing traffic and encouraging walking and biking will provide you with more room to move about campus while socially distancing from others.
  • In order to accommodate an extended class day and provide more bus capacity to reduce passenger numbers, campus bus routes will be focused on delivering students to the outer edge of the campus core from remote areas. The campus bus system, will offer two campus routes this fall:
    • The two campus routes will serve Commuter West (near the United Supermarkets Arena) and Commuter Satellite (near the West Rec Fields and John Walker Soccer Complex).
    • The two campus bus routes will have stop locations at Media & Communications and the Rawls College of Business. These two stop locations will deliver you to the edge of the core campus and it will be a short walk to your destination.
  • The off-campus apartment bus service will continue to operate on the normal routes.
  • Face masks or appropriate face coverings are to be worn at all times on campus busses, including bus routes to and from campus. Masks will be required at bus stops where social distancing cannot be maintained: Campus Face Covering Policy & Exemptions.
  • With so many passengers relying the bus service every day, Citibus remains committed to sanitization and cleaning procedures aimed at protecting your health. Hand sanitizer will be available for passengers and operators. Each bus will be disinfected daily with a focus on high-touch areas and undergo a thorough professional deep cleaning once per week.
  • Adapting our transportation services to accommodate an extended class day and limiting the number of passengers on each bus requires us to allocate all our resources to that goal. As result, we will be unable to provide our usual after-hours Raider Ride service. Many services exist within the Lubbock community for after-hours service. These include the new Citibus on Demand service, Uber, Lyft and taxi companies. More information about the new Citibus On-Demand service can be found at:
  • While moving about campus, it is important to maintain social distancing. This can be difficult to achieve when bicycles and scooters are mixed with pedestrian traffic. To ensure pedestrians have room on the sidewalks on campus, riding bicycles or personal scooters on sidewalks will be prohibited this fall.
