The Naval Engineering Command Far East (NAVFACFE), Public Works Department (PWD) has implemented the changes to the Narita (NRT) and Haneda (HND) Shuttle’s schedule and procedures outlined below beginning 01 March 2022.
NAVFACFE PWD will provide separate shuttles for AM departures/arrivals and PM departures/arrivals.
The set times of the Airport Shuttles will be adhere to regardless of early or late flight schedules or flight delays.
1) Scheme of Maneuvers.
a. Both AM/PM Shuttles will follow the same scheme of maneuvers that begins at NAF Atsugi proceeding to HND/NRT for drop-offs, NRT/HND for pick-ups, and returning to NAF Atsugi.
b. Times shown on the schedule below represent final times the shuttle will either arrive or depart from each location.
For example, AM Shuttle will make multiple stops around the installation (see paragraph 3) but leave the final bus stop at 0520 departing from NAF Atsugi.
The AM Shuttle will arrive at HND at 0630 for drop-offs and arrive at NRT at 0800 for drop-offs.
The AM Shuttle will remain at NRT and arrive at NRT Terminal-1 (NRT T-1) approximately at 0945 for a departure at 1000.
c. Due to COVID restriction, we are unable to mix newly arrived passengers with passengers departing Japan.
This means if you arrive at HND at 0500 you must wait for the AM Shuttle departure at 1230 even though the same bus is dropping off passengers at 0630.
d. If your flight is late or you are unable to get through security/customs before a shuttle departs, then you will need to either wait for the next shuttle or contact your sponsor for other pick-up alternatives.
This situation applies even if you are on the shuttle manifest.
e. Shuttle Drivers will not actively search for arriving passengers to ensure they make it to the shuttle.
It is the responsibility of the traveler to be at the pick-up locations (see paragraph 4).
f. If you are traveling with pets, then see Note 1 to arrange special accommodations. Airports shuttles are not authorized to transport pets.
Shuttle passenger reservations are mandatory and must be received no later than1400 the day prior to travel.
Flight arrivals and departures scheduled for the weekend or holiday(s) will make shuttle reservations by 1400 the last working day before the weekend or holiday(s).
For all inbound & outbound (arrivals & departures), make reservations on NAF Atsugi at Bldg. 1290 Unaccompanied Housing Front Desk.
Reservations must be made in person or by email if on official travel.
Making a reservation will guarantee a seat will be provided for you, by allowing NAVFACFE PWD to properly size the quantity of shuttle(s) needed to meet the AM/PM shuttle requirement.
For example, if NAVFACFE PWD receives enough reservations to warrant multiple shuttles in either the AM or PM schedule, then PWD will send multiple shuttles at the same time.
In the event a traveler does not make the proper reservation (e.g. arrives at an airport without any notification) then the shuttle will accommodate travel to and from, but passengers with reservations will be given priority for shuttle seating.
If there is not enough seats available, then the unannounced travelers will need to wait for the next shuttle or make alternative arrangements with their sponsor.

Note 4: Child safety restraint systems are mandatory for children 4 years old and/or 45 pounds or less.
Advance notice is required for seating accommodations, if available.
Note 5: Government Auto. NAVFAC's role as the Navy's single manager of Civil Engineering Support Equipment (CESE) is to ensure government vehicles are provided at the optimal/minimal levels to support mission requirements.
The foundation of CESE inventory is based solely on mission requirements and does not include TAD support.
As such, they are not considered to be reasonably available to support TAD without diminishing the mission for which they were acquired.
Accordingly, it is NAVFAC policy that government vehicles will not be used to support TAD.
Exceptions may be granted on a limited basis in rare situations (e.g. vehicle use on Base, during working hours, chargeable to the Base Host or tenants).
