Take the Bus
What is CyRide?
CyRide is the Ames Iowa city bus system that functions as a collaborative effort between Iowa State University, the City of Ames, and ISU's Student Government. While students of Iowa State University, children under the age of 5, and Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) may ride the bus for free, citizens pay a small fee.
As one of the city's primary transportation systems with a fleet of vehicles and multiple routes, CyRide offers unique business opportunities for local firms wishing to advertise with maximum exposure around the city.
