Anteater Express employs UCI students with specialized training in bus operations. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and remote learning, our student staffing numbers have been drastically reduced, requiring schedule and route reductions. To support academic year service and increase staffing numbers, our focus this summer is to hire and train as many new operators as possible to provide increased shuttle services for Fall Quarter. While we may not yet return to pre-pandemic staffing and bus service, this training class is crucial to increasing service for future routing.
For patrons looking for transportation options during the summer, Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) bus routes provide service to various UCI campus and off-campus locations. OCTA has additional information on routes and schedules on their website. The University Pass, available through Transportation and Distribution Services, provides unlimited regular service on OC Bus shuttles. More information about the University Pass can be found on the UCI Transportation and Distribution Services website.
