Cycle Learning Center
Boise State’s own bike shop and maintenance center. You can buy new and used bikes for great prices, get a tune up, or take free lunchtime workshops to learn how to fix your own bike. The CLC is a platinum-level bike friendly business that also provides recreational and educational opportunities for students and the community.
Bronco Shuttle Stop
Valley Ride stops on campus to help get around the city without a car. Bronco Shuttles are free to the public – not just students and staff! The Bronco Shuttles average 28,000 rides per month, eliminating the need to drive on campus.
Fun fact: The Orange shuttle goes downtown to the transit center. Take this shuttle instead of driving, save on emissions and the cost/stress of parking!
