SLAC’s Transportation Department has had to change some
important policies in order to bring SLAC into compliance with Federal
Caltrain Shuttle Services
An outside vendor now provides shuttle service to and from
the Palo Alto Caltrain station. For the schedule, see:

Heavy Loads & Hazardous Materials
SLAC cannot operate vehicles greater than 10,000 pounds
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), loaded or empty, offsite. SLAC
vehicles and drivers are not DOT certified and licensed, and do not
conform to DOT requirements.
SLAC will not pick-up, transport or deliver any load that
is defined as a hazardous material offsite. Arrangements should be made
with outside vendors to transport heavy loads or for moving hazardous
SLAC Busses or Bus Drivers
SLAC can no longer provide SLAC busses and/or drivers to
transport groups offsite carrying more than ten people at a time due to
DOT regulations. Additionally, SEM is not staffed to provide drivers for
these activities either on site or offsite.
Arrangements can be made to transport groups of people by
engaging outside vendors, such as the Marguerite (725-5996 or e-mail
email@example.com), or contact the Public Affairs Office (ext. 2204)
to order charter busses.
