THE BRONCO HOLIDAY SHUTTLE IS BACK!!
The Department of Public Safety is happy to present a new pilot program! We will be offering a no cost shuttle from the Brady Garage to the Boise Airport to ensure safe, efficient, and low-stress commuting for our Boise State community members traveling for the winter holiday break! This resource will be available to all campus students, staff, and faculty.
For convenience, riders of the Bronco Holiday Shuttle will be approved to leave their car on the top floor of the Brady Garage from December 15, 2022 to January 9, 2023 without having to pay for extended or overnight parking if they ride the Bronco Shuttle as their transportation to the airport. Additionally, for those on campus who do not own a car and may choose to ride their bicycle to campus, extended indoor storage of bicycles for program participants will be made available in the Cycle Learning Center located in the Lincoln Garage.
Riders will board the shuttle at the Brady Garage and deboard at the Boise Airport. The shuttle will run on Thursday, December 15th and Friday, December 16th, 2022 from 6am until 9pm. The shuttle will complete a route every 30 minutes and will begin on the hour and half hour completing 30 trips to and from the airport that day. If you miss your shuttle time, please wait for the route to complete and the driver will be happy to help you board during the next route.
Extended and overnight parking on the top floor of the Brady Garage and/or bicycle storage in the Cycle Learning Center Bike Barn, located in the Lincoln Garage, is included in this program, but only available if you ride the shuttle. You do not need to bring a car or bicycle to be eligible. This benefit is provided for convenience.
If you choose to leave your car in the Brady Garage and/or bicycle in the Cycle Learning Center Bike Barn for the duration of the Winter break, you must return and pick it up no later than Monday, January 9th at 5:00 p.m. If your travel back to Boise is delayed or you expect to be unable to meet this deadline, please call us at 208-426-7275 or email our team at email@example.com so that we can support you.
Reservations for this program are available on a first come, first served basis. Reserve early to ensure your space!
DEADLINE TO RESERVE YOUR SPACE ON A SHUTTLE IS December 13, 2022 AT 5:00PM
***This is a pilot program. In the instance this is successful, Public Safety, Transportation and Parking hope to extend this resource to additional holiday and leave periods.***
Do the days and time of this program not work for your travel schedule? That is okay! Route 3, the Vista Line, provided by our partners at Valley Regional Transit offer service from S. Capitol Blvd. and W. University Dr. to the Boise Airport SIX days a week! All students, faculty, and staff can ride the Valley Regional Transit busses for free with their Boise State ID card. More about this route can be found here.

During peak hours (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) the shuttle frequency is approximately every eight minutes. During non-peak shuttle hours (5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) shuttle frequency is approximately every fifteen minutes.
