Transfort helps you commute to CSU

Parking and Transportation Services provides all employees a free bus pass on their RamCard. You can ride any Transfort route in the city, via bus or MAX.  More than 50 percent of employees who live in Fort Collins have access to a Transfort stop within a quarter mile of their home. Let someone else do the driving, and catch up on a few emails or just focus on you.  On campus, catch the Around the Horn shuttle to get you across campus, to the Research Blvd Parking Lot, and onto the Veterinary Teaching Hospital campus.  Live outside Fort Collins, catch the FLEX in Boulder, Longmont, and Loveland, too.Colorado State University Around the Horn Shuttle Wrap Unveiled

What is in place to ensure my safety on transit?

All Transfort passenger buses are equipped with a mobile video security system to allow Transfort operations and law enforcement staff to view live video feeds from nearby vehicles, improving the safety and security of operators and passengers.

Transfort can also use GPS data reported through this system to identify the exact location of buses along their routes. This information is useful for daily operations and allows dispatchers to monitor and actively manage buses, and the ability to provide live vehicle location information could prove very valuable in an emergency situation.
