Improve St. John's shuttle service
*PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING*
By signing this petition, you are urging St. John’s University to improve their shuttle bus service to and from off-campus resident halls. This includes routes to the Henley, DePaul, Seton, the Staten Island Campus, and the Jamaica train station. This petition also calls on St. John's to bring back their shuttle to the Manhattan campus and to the Kew Gardens train station. The student body wants a schedule that coincides with class times and adheres to the schedule. With the new schedule this semester, the shuttles have not been leaving on time. Students wait patiently for shuttles that will never come, or that have left early. The shuttle tracker does not work on everyone’s device, and the schedule is complicated to read. St. John’s residents and commuters are not able to rely on the shuttle bus service to get them to class and back home.
Because of high crime possibilities around the St. John's University campus, Public Safety officers advise students to:
> When possible, travel with a friend and make every effort to travel in populated, well-lit areas. Use the buddy system—do not walk alone—especially at night.
> Familiarize yourself with campus transportation, the campus escort service, and shuttle bus schedules
Without a reliable bus service and schedule, many students resort to walking home alone at night. This puts them at risk for multiple crimes. Below is a link to two Public Safety Advisories about crimes this month.
Let's hold St. John's accountable for the convenient shuttle bus service that they advertise, but do not provide.
