tiger transit image

Hours of Operations: 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily


For the safety and convenience of all Clemson University students, faculty, and staff, Tiger Transit Nighttime offers service to and from any location on Clemson’s campus. Tiger Transit does not operate when Clemson University is not in session and may be unable to provide service during peak traffic times surrounding home football games.


See the 2019-2020 Operating Service Calendar 


Tiger Transit drivers are employees of Parking and Transportation Services, a department with the Division of Student Affairs. All staff members must pass a police security background check and motor vehicle record check.  After this process is complete and references are checked, the new member begins a structured training program to prepare him or her for service.

Tiger Transit Vehicles have two-way radios installed to maintain contact with the CUPD dispatchers.

Tiger Transit rides must be requested online using:


  1. Using the My.Clemson app under the "Transit" tab
  2. tigertransit.clemson.edu

 

For each method, make sure to review the pick-up and drop-off locations defined by the system. Also, be sure to include the number of people in your party, and a brief description of you or your vehicle. By using the my.clemson app, you are able to track your ride in real time.

  • Transportation is only provided to and from on-campus locations.

  • Transportation is not provided to groups of more than three persons.

  • Transportation is not provided to persons visibly intoxicated.

  • Be ready and at the specified pick-up location when Tiger Transit arrives.

  • If you decide a ride is no longer necessary, please cancel your request online.

  • Rides may be delayed by traffic or inclement weather; please be patient.

Tiger Transit reserves the right to refuse transportation to persons who behave improperly during transport, are abusive to Tiger Transit personnel or who abuse the service.

A. It is a small bus or white passenger van with the Tiger Transit logo on it.

A. Unfortunately, we cannot take any passengers to locations that are off the Clemson University campus.

A. Tiger Transit serves a large number of riders. We will get to your pick-up location as soon as we possibly can. Please make sure you are visible as the Tiger Transit vehicle approaches. By tracking the driver assigned to you via the ride request system on any internet enabled device, you can get a better idea of the progress of your ride request.

A. Sometimes the vehicle reaches capacity. We will return to your pick-up location as soon as possible. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this might cause. It is also possible that the vehicle you saw was not assigned to pick up your call. If you use the driver tracking feature of the ride request page you can know where your ride is as soon as it is assigned to a driver.

A. The buses are routed by a combination of the driver and the dispatcher trying to provide the timeliest service for the largest amount of people. The drop-offs are managed with that concept in mind. If we operated by a first-on-first-off concept everyone's wait time would be negatively affected and the availability of the system in general would decline.
