Drexel Shuttle Service
Drexel University bus service along the Dragon Route (Center City Loop), Queen Lane Route (East Falls Loop) and Powelton/Spring Garden Route is running on modified schedules and with health protocols in place. You can view the schedules via PDF on the Campus Bus Service website. The following protocols will be in place to ensure the health and safety of our riders and drivers:
- Capacity for the buses will be drastically reduced; please do not utilize this service unless you are authorized to be reporting for work or research on campus.
- Masks will be required to enter any Drexel Transit vehicle.
- Riders are required to maintain social distancing while loading onto the buses and to sit in designated seating to maintain our safety thresholds. Riders must enter from the front of the vehicle. Upon entering, please take the first available seat starting from the rear of the bus.
- Each bus put into service will be disinfected twice per day.
- Hand sanitizer dispensers will be installed on each bus.
Drexel campus facilities remain closed to the public until further notice. As of fall 2020 and until further notice, students, faculty and professional staff must scan their DragonCard to enter all campus buildings. While in campus buildings, please wear a mask, maintain distance from others, and pay mind to signage indicating entry/exit only and one-way hallways and stairways.
For those working in a leased location, the department's designated representative working on their campus-return-to-work implementation should reach out to Kyle Kephart to discuss the department or College plans and review the leased building's COVID-19 guidelines. Kyle can be reached at email@example.com.
Shipping and Receiving
For packages being shipped to campus, if you are not on campus to accept the delivery, please contact the supplier to cancel or hold the order. Shipping and receiving will continue to hold packages, but storage is limited and strained. Delivery Service has resumed. Please contact Shipping and Receiving at 215.895.2817 to restart regular delivery service or coordinate a one-time drop off of the packages that have accumulated. You may also call ahead to schedule a pickup at the receiving window on the first floor of the General Services Building at 34th and Market streets, Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
