Summer Schedule Begins!

Saturday - May 11, 2019

Post Date:05/03/2019 11:15 AM

CyRide begins its Summer service beginning Saturday, May 11th!  Please note that many of the routes that were not modified to CyRide 2.0 routes alignments last year have now been modified for summer 2019.  Last summer, the #5 Yellow, East Ames Service Extension (EASE) and lower fares were introduced first during the summer service and then the remaining route modifications were made in August 2018.  Therefore, many CyRide 2.0 routes are being deployed for the first time for summer 2019 services with a few modifications. Additionally, there are major detours on central campus this summer due to construction on Union Drive (Upper Friley area), Bissell Rd. (Hoover Hall area), and Wallace Rd. (Gerdin Business Bldg. area).  As a result, CyRide will detour buses around these areas.  See www.cyride.com/Rider-Alert for more information.

With the new summer schedule beginning May 11th, CyRide would like to remind you of the following:

  • Switch your Bookmarks - Please remember to switch to CyRide's Summer schedule/timetables and Summer route map beginning May 11th, if you have CyRide's school year schedules bookmarked in your electronic device. Please note the major construction and CyRide detour on the west end of campus impacting every bus route operating on Bissell and Union.  CyRide has added detour route maps for this construction period for campus as well as individually below but if you have questions, please call CyRide at (515) 292-1100.  View the Summer Campus Detour Map or visit www.cyride.com/Rider-Alert  for more information.
