Cardinal Court Residents

Improved transit service to Cardinal Court!

The Office of Parking and Transportation and Connect Transit worked together to provide increased frequencies to the Cardinal Court apartment complex. The Redbird Express Blue Route will now include Cardinal Court. Signs will be posted at the complex outlining the various transit lines that service the complex. Follow the links below for an abbreviated schedule of stop times to Cardinal Court, as well as Tri-Towers and Shelbourne Apartments. Reminder: Connect Transit makes every effort to keep the routes running on time, but outside factors can influence this process. Please plan to arrive at your bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled pick up time.

Athletic Shuttles

Homecoming Shuttle:

Our office provides a Homecoming Shuttle that originates at the Alumni Center and provides transportation to the parade and game.

Men's Basketball Shuttle

Our office also sponsors the ISU Men's Basketball Shuttle bus service to transport partons to and from the men's home games. The shuttle originates at the Motorcycle Safety Lot on Gregory St. and drops fans off at the south doors of the Redbird Arena. After the game, the shuttle picks up fans at the south doors of the Redbird Arena and takes them back to the Motorcycle Safety Lot. There is no charge for this service and no charge to park in the Motorcycle Safety Lot.

Please pay careful attention to the signs in the Motorcycle Safety Lot and the adjacent lot and make sure when you park that you do not block the shuttle bus access lanes. The shuttle will run for 15 minutes after the end of the game so we ask that you promptly return to the shuttle once the game is over. Thank You!
