tiger transit image

Hours of Operations: 6 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday - Thursday and 6 p.m.-6 a.m. Friday - Sunday.


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.

Rules to Remember:

  1. Masks are required to ride and remain over your nose and mouth. No Mask = No Ride
  2. No group riders - Each rider must submit their own ride
  3. No walk-ons - Each rider must board the bus specifically assigned and dispatched to them
  4. No eating or drinking on the bus - It makes you take your mask off which violates rule #1

See the 2020-2021 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. The Nighttime Tiger Transit program is dispatched automatically using algorithms within TransLoc - our ride request system. Drivers cannot alter, in any way, their assigned rides or drop-offs. Additional requests, cancellations, and no-shows affects the algorithm and ride order. Cancellations are the MOST disruptive to the system.

The TransLoc app notifies you when "The bus is on the way." This message means you are locked onto that bus assignment and it is on its way to you. Minor delays (0-5 minutes) from the given ETA may still occur resulting from no-show riders, traffic, stoplights, routings, etc.


You can track your bus within the TransLoc app once "The bus is on the way". Please make sure you are visible as the Tiger Transit vehicle approaches. This includes waving a flashlight, raising your arm, or walking quickly to the vehicle so the driver realizes you are their pick-up.

A. You are in the queue. Being in the queue means you are waiting to be assigned an available bus based on the algorithm's routing. Do NOT cancel your ride and re-request it. You are losing your place in line and going back to the bottom.

A. It was not your bus. You will receive a push notification from the TransLoc App that "The bus is on its way". At that time, you can track the live ETA and bus location on the TransLoc app as it comes to you.
