Snow Policy

When weather-related schedule changes must occur, we will always keep you informed.

We post the most up-to-the-minute alerts about weather-related delays on twitter (@UnlockTheGrid)—which you can follow on your device or see on the front page of our site—and over our mobile rider app. Less time-sensitive notifications are posted in the Orange “Updates & Alerts” box on the page for your shuttle route and communicated via email notifications.

Please consider signing up for your shuttle’s route-specific email list. Twitter and in-app notifications are ideal for fast communication, but some messages require more details than these platforms allow. Signing up for your shuttle’s email list ensures that you get the transportation information you need—and since our lists are route-specific, you won’t receive messages about routes that you don’t ride.
