New 20/21 buses and shuttles operations updates include:

  • All BBMR buses and shuttles are operating in accordance with state, county, and local guidelines
    • TIP: Guests unwilling/able to ride public transportation should plan accordingly and arrive earlier to ensure upper lot parking availability
  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed on all open-air shuttles
  • Windows on enclosed busses must remain open at all times for air circulation

  • Open-air shuttles are equipped with grab handles and other means of support for standing passengers
    • TIP: Wear gloves to avoid direct contact with surface areas
