There are enough forms of transportation in Bloomington-Normal that there is no need for a student to have a car on ISU's campus, other than for pure convenience. The Redbird Express Shuttle is perfect for on-campus traveling and runs Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters. This shuttle has two routes that provide transportation around campus: the first is from Tri-Towers to East Campus, and the second is from Atkin/Colby to East Campus.
Another good form of transportation is the Bloomington-Normal Public Transportation System (BNPTS), which stops at Watterson and will take students practically anywhere in town, with routes organized by colors and letters. The BNPTS can be confusing for new users, but the drivers are helpful and will answer any questions. The BNPTS is free with a student ID, but costs $1 for all other patrons. Most students enjoying walking or riding their bikes around campus when the weather permits. There are also taxi services, but these are more reserved for the weekend when traveling downtown.
