PRO-TIP: SURVING RUTGERS BUSES
- Never cram yourself onto a LX at the SAC. They come every two minutes, you’ll catch one of them and avoid an uncomfortable ride.
2. If you want to avoid the rush of students at the SAC walk to the Rutgers Student Center bus stop. Most people get off there so you’ll find a good seat.
3. If you’re at Rutgers Student Center and it’s after 5 p.m. give up on that EE. It’s not coming anytime soon and when it does the driver will take a ten minutes break.
4. The H bus takes its time get to the SAC in the mornings and it doesn’t don’t come often. This is a bus you’ll want to run to catch.
5. After 8:30 p.m. on weekdays the REXL and REXB take an alternate route. You can catch it at Bravo Supermarket and Rockoff Hall on George Street.
6. The REXL and REXB never stop at the Quads on Livingston.
7. Never take the REXL or REXB on a weekday after 4:30 p.m. unless you want to sit in traffic. The drivers often take alternate routes—but they don’t cut down on much time.
8. Never take the EE if you’re in a hurry to get to Cook/Douglass.
10. Ask “out of service” bus drivers their last stop, don’t just hop off. They may be heading where you need to go.
11. Most B buses are accordion buses.These buses hold twice the amount of students as a normal bus. If you miss one, you’ll make the next one.
12. After 9 p.m that H bus is your only savior to leave Busch. Not many people get on after 9:30 p.m. so you’ll always find a seat.
13. Don’t trust the bus app. Time out how long it takes for the bus to get to the stops before yours, you’ll give yourself extra time to things other than stand at the bus stop.
