Effective August 19, 2019, CyRide has transitioned its previous real-time predictive service (Nextbus) to a new system called MyRide. (This includes Iowa State's MyState application.) The Nextbus system will not function from this point forward due to expiring agreements. Passengers may want to utilize the published or printed school year schedule to determine bus arrival times during the this transition of technology. Passengers can also call CyRide directly at 515-292-1100 for schedule information.
