Bus Information

Humboldt State University's Jack Pass program encourages mass transit and reduced fuel consumption by enabling students to travel on Humboldt County bus systems for free. Save car and parking expenses, and help protect the environment at the same time! The Jack Pass is funded from a portion of regular student fees.

All HSU students will have unlimited free ride access on the Redwood Transit System (RTS) buses, which serve the Route 101 corridor from Trinidad to Scotia, including Valley East and Valley West in Arcata, the Eureka Transit System (ETS) buses which serve the city of Eureka and Arcata & Mad River Transit System (A&MRTS) which serves the Arcata area.

Currently registered students simply slide their HSU student identification card through the bus fare box and receive a free ride. Staff, faculty, and Extended Education students can buy into the program for $60.00 a semester, at the Student Financial Services window on the second floor of the Student Business Services building.
