  • The LSC Transit Center will remain open and Transfort routes are expected to run as normally scheduled. Your RamCard is your free bus pass on all Transfort services, including MAX, and Flex to Loveland, Longmont and Boulder. Please verify routes and schedules via the city’s Transfort website,
  • Carpool or drive to a transit stop, including a MAX stop, and take MAX or a Transfort bus the last leg of your commute. MAX runs every 10 minutes and has three stations on or bordering campus (Prospect, University and Laurel Stations). For a map of Park and Ride lots along MAX, scroll to the bottom of com/max.
  • Ride your bike, or use a Pace bike share bike. New users enter code “CSU” for $10 in ride credit. Visit com/fortcollins for more info and to sign up.
  • Ask a friend to drop you off and pick you up from campus or a nearby location that you can walk to. Your ride will be able to drive onto campus until shortly before 5 p.m., although they should not park and leave their vehicle. Arrange your meeting time for when you’ll be able to be in the meeting location.
