Bear Line Shuttle

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!

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.

Shuttles are also climate controlled and offer a comfortable ride. No individual fares will be charged to any passenger. Buses are specially equipped for persons with disabilities.
