Transportation

Getting around campus is easy with the University’s free bus system, Cambus. Bongo (Bus on the Go) makes it even easier if you have a smart phone. When you see a sign for a Cambus stop, text that bongo stop number to 41411 and bongo tells you when the next bus will arrive! You can also use the QR codes on every sign to pull up the Bongo site for more information about that stop, including a map of the bus route, and lists of each stop. Five main Cambus routes will be operating during On Iowa! August 16-20. If you are living off campus, visit our Off-campus Parking Page.
