Students Ride Transit

Public transportation options are available to get you to campus and around Fort Collins.  All students receive a Transfort transit pass (on their Ramcard) included in their student fees thanks to the commitment from the Associated Students of Colorado State University.  You can ride any Transfort route in the city, via bus or MAX.  Your transit pass can also get you to Loveland, Longmont and Boulder via the FLEX.

Try taking transit to campus and eliminate the stress of driving from your daily commute.  When riding the bus, you can check your email, text a friend, or prepare for an upcoming test.

On campus?  Catch the Around the Horn shuttle.

Safety on buses

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 the security 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.
