Bear Line offers a convenient and safe way to travel -- no matter where your destination on campus. Just JUMP ON from any of the well-lit, covered shuttle stops conveniently located across campus. Shuttles are climate controlled and offer a comfortable ride. No individual fares will be charged to any passenger. Buses are specially equipped for persons with disabilities.

Commuters -- leave the driving to us!

Bear Line can help take the pressure off finding a parking place in crowded lots. Simply park in one of the spacious, covered parking garages -- Bear Park North, located off John Q. Hammons Parkway with entrances on Cherry and Elm Streets, and Bear Park South, located at the intersection of Holland and Grand -- and catch the shuttle. Just be sure to arrive about 15 minutes early to allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
