How to Ride the Bus
ISU Parking Services and Pocatello Regional Transit provide a free bus system from the north end of the Holt Arena parking lot. The buses stop at prime areas throughout campus with a 3 to 5 minute turn around time.
Bus drivers are friendly and willing to assist those who are new to campus, especially first time visitors who are not familiar with campus.
How to Ride the Bus
There are three buses that run Monday through Friday (during
the regular school year). Service begins at 7:30 a.m.
for the first bus, and ends at 5:45 p.m. for the last
bus. A fourth (4th) bus is added on Monday, Wednesday
and Friday and runs until noon. Turn around time is 3 to
5 minutes. Other bus stops are shown on the map, and
each building is numbered for quick identification.
Buses stop at scheduled stops only. Bus service is
reduced during finals week.
The Housing bus route runs from Schubert Heights to the Student Union Building. The Housing route bus service begins at 7:35 am and ends at 5:00 pm every weekday. The Housing route runs once every hour.
To leave the bus, pull the cord that runs above the windows on each side of the bus.
