Campus & City Buses
Take a free ride (on a bus)
Whether you need to travel across campus or across town, chances are there's a campus or city bus that can take you where you need to go—and you can do it for free if you're an IU employee or student.
Campus Bus Service
Campus Bus Service provides bus transportation on campus. Anyone—including visitors—can ride a campus bus for free, and all buses are fully ADA-accessible.
Bus schedules are based on class times, and there are no transfers to other public transportation systems.
