Request P.M. Pickup

Each afternoon/evening, 128 Business Council shuttles on multi-stop routes will only stop at those pickup sites for which riders have requested a pickup. Evening pickup requests can only be made for the current day between 5:00 A.M. EST and 12:00 P.M. EST. You do not need to use this form for A.M. travel.

Note: You cannot reserve more than one seat for a single evening. If you submit this request form multiple times in the same day, we will honor the last request submitted.

    Each shuttle is limited to eight riders to provide for safe physical distancing on board. If requests exceed this capacity, we will assign seats based on the order in which requests were received and may need to contact you about an alternate pickup time.

    We need your contact information to follow up with you about your pickup request.

    COVID-19 Protocols

    General Protocols

    Make sure to review our general rider protocols here.

    Morning Protocols

      Waltham Route B riders do not need to request a ride in the morning. A seat will be assigned to you before you board the shuttle.
      Head to the shuttle stop located on Carter Street after you arrive at Waltham Center.
      Find the bright green 6-foot distance sidewalk decals. Feel feel to move around as needed to avoid foot traffic on Carter Street, but return to one of these decals when you see your shuttle approaching.
      Do not approach the bus until the driver opens the door. Once the driver opens the door, approach the bus one at a time, and exercise patience to avoid crowding other riders.
      Inform the driver of your stop as you enter the vehicle.
      Unless instructed otherwise by the driver, go immediately to the lowest-numbered available seat, as far to the back of the shuttle as possible. This will ensure that seats further forward are available to riders boarding after you, reducing potential interactions or even collisions in the aisles.
      Do not stand up until it’s your turn to exit. We are working hard to maximize the space between riders and minimize riders having to pass one another in close quarters. Do your part by staying in your assigned seat and exercising patience when exiting the vehicle.
      Allow more than 6 feet of space in the aisle when following others off the vehicle.

    Evening Protocols

      Do not forget to request a seat by 12:00 PM EST. Each afternoon/evening, shuttles will only stop at those sites for which riders have requested a pickup. Afternoon/evening pickup requests for the current day’s pickups can be made beginning at 5:00 AM EST.
      Arrive at least 5 minutes early to the shuttle waiting area. Give yourself plenty of time so that you don’t have to rush.
      Maintain at least a 6-foot distance from other waiting riders. For reference, six feet is a little more than the length of a bicycle and a little less than the length of a full-size bed. We can also work with your employer to demarcate 6-foot waiting areas as part of creating a worksite health & safety plan.
      Do not approach the bus until the driver opens the door. Once the driver opens the door, approach the bus one at a time, and exercise patience to avoid crowding other riders.
      Unless instructed otherwise by the driver, go immediately to the lowest-numbered available seat, as far to the back of the shuttle as possible. This will ensure that seats further forward are available to riders at later stops, eliminating the need for riders to pass one another in close quarters.
      Do not stand up until it’s your turn to exit. We are working hard to maximize the space between riders and minimize riders having to pass one another in close quarters. Do your part by staying in your seat and exercising patience when exiting the vehicle.
      Let the riders in front of you exit the bus first when the shuttle pulls into the station. The rider in the highest numbered seat (closest to the front) should exit first.
      Allow more than 6 feet of space in the aisle when following others off the vehicle.
