SF State has announced that there is a new fleet of shuttle buses to take the place of its old fleet. The new grouping of vehicles are said to be better for the environment, faster boarding, and are roomier to boot. They’re nearly the size of a Muni bus typically used for the 28 line.

“Coming Monday: SF State will launch new fleet of shuttle buses with increased capacity with faster loading times that run on eco-friendly compressed natural gas,” stated SF State’s Facebook account on Thursday.

The ride to and from the campus mainly services the community from the Daly City BART Station to SF State and is still free to students.

Some commuters on campus Thursday were already able to ride in these new-fangled machines.

Judging from the comments and over 1,800 likes on the post since yesterday, it looks like the majority of students are excited to see this change to their commute.

Now we just need those student-discounted Clipper cards everyone was talking about two years ago.
