The city’s transit system, TransFort, tailors to neighborhoods with high concentrations of students and employees. This means our commuters have a reasonable walk to a transit stop from their home.

Most TransFort routes come directly to the Lory Student Center in the heart of campus. All students and employees receive a free bus pass supported by their student fees. Here’s how you can find your closest transit stop along with the distance to walk:
