Getting Around Fort Collins

If you won't have a car while living in Fort Collins, getting around the CSU Campus and the City of Fort Collins can still be surprisingly easy!

Transfort (Fort Collins Public Bus System)

Fort Collins has an excellent public bus system and CSU students, faculty and staff get to ride it for free! The student ID you receive when you arrive at CSU is also your bus pass. The Transfort hours vary but the buses usually run Monday through Saturday from 6:30am-10:30pm. Check out the new MAX bus rapid transit system and the campus shuttle, Around the Horn. 



Whether you need a car for a few hours to run errands or the whole day, you can use Zipcar. They're parked right on campus. With Zipcar, you never have to worry about car payments, maintenance, gas or insurance.

Where to Rent Bicycles
