The Loop

A much-needed move to help make Berkeley more accessible:

Dear Students: Welcome Back to Spring 2007 Semester!

I am pleased to announce that this semester the campus is offering, at no cost to eligible riders, a golf cart service that assists faculty, staff, and students who have an impairment that makes self-ambulating the length of the main campus difficult.

Referred to as The Loop, this golf cart service is described at where those interested in the service may learn about eligibility criteria and apply online by completing a quick and easy one-page form.

Loop Facts:

-Service available to eligible faculty, staff, and students

-Carts run 8:30am - 4:30pm Monday Friday

-Frequency: every 20 minutes

-Pickup Points: eight convenient campus locations*

-Drop-off Points: almost anywhere on the main campus

-In a Hurry? Call Driver for estimated waiting time

*Pickup Points at Sathergate, Kroeber, Haas/Cheit, Campbell, Memorial Glade, Giannini, West Circle, Valley Life Sciences Building

Individuals with disabilities who wish to learn more about campus services and accommodations are encouraged to consult the Campus Access Guide (

If you have any questions about the new golf cart service, feel free to contact me by email (please include your phone number).
