Welcome to RAM Rush!
The City of Albany will operate the Ram Rush transportation service fall semester, 2020 following the "Mask Up Albany" and ASU safety guidelines. All citizens/students that utilize public transportation, of which Ram Rush is part of, will be required to wear a mask when boarding and riding the buses. Entry to the bus will be through the rear entry/exit door. Social distancing is not being enforced when riding the buses; however, bus capacity is based on seating room only. Normal seating is two per row. Riders may social distance themselves to one per row of seats or two may be seated side by side. Capacity is reduced when there is only one per seat row. No standing will be allowed on any Ram Rush bus. Arrive early to get a seat on the bus! Seating capacity on two buses is 26 passengers each and the third bus is 33. These guidelines are subject to change without notice should guidelines issued by the appropriate governmental bodies be amended.
The University is excited to collaborate with the City of Albany and the Albany Transit
System to offer bus services to and from the West Campus and East Campus, Ram Rush.
As an added bonus, students qualified to ride the Ram Rush may also ride any City
Transit bus to any location in Albany serviced by the transit system free of charge.
A qualified student is one who has paid all of his/her tuition and fees to include
the Transportation Fee.
There are three bus stops on each campus. Each bus will stop at all three locations when on the respective campuses. Bus shelters and stops are located at the following locations.
- Herbert Haley Road just past Village South Residence Hall
- Cavalier Drive in front of the Physical Education Building
- East Access Road in front of the Allied Health/Community Services Building, Building J
- Dennis Drive – between Hall 3 and the Student Center

Should there ever be a time that you arrive at the bus stop and the driver is not
on board, please do not attempt to board the bus. No rider is allowed to enter the
bus unless the driver is present.
Students must have their ID in order to ride the bus. The bus driver will not allow anyone to ride who cannot swipe his/her ID card in the fare box.
