Transportation Initiatives

Take the Bus - It’s Free With ID  

If you have a Notre Dame ID, any TRANSPO bus is free, anytime.  So try taking the bus to work, and on your next weekend outing too! Route 7 takes you to Notre Dame. See TRANSPO for all other routes.

Bike to School - and to Work

Biking is great for the environment, your wallet, and your health. There are bike loops in dozens of locations around campus - check them out in the Guide to Michiana Bike Routes

Regional Transportation Planning

The Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) is collaborating with South Bend Public Transportation (TRANSPO) to develop the CONNECT Transit Plan. CONNECT will address the area's long-range transportation plan, which includes bussing, walking, biking, and more. You can provide your thoughts by filling out the Michiana On the Move Survey.
