  • Where do I park to catch a bus? E-Permit parking is available at the Indiana Memorial Stadium. Parking near gate 8 allows easy access to the A route and X route to campus. For more information on parking on campus, visit Parking Operations.

  • How do I let the driver know I want off? Each bus is equipped with a signal cord. Pull the cord to let the bus operator know you would like the next stop.

  • Why are there more buses on A route than B route? To effectively utilize Campus Bus's limited resources, the number of buses on any route is determined by ridership statistics. A route services many more people than B route.
