Alternative Transportation

Around the Horn

CSU’s on-campus shuttle, Around the Horn, helps visitors, students, faculty and staff get across the university’s nearly square-mile campus more conveniently and quickly. Around the Horn services are free to employees, students and visitors, thanks to generous contributions by the Division of Operations and ASCSU.

Around the Horn will provide rides to 14 stops at locations across campus identified by input from students and employees. During summer months, including the first week of service, the shuttle will run every 30 minutes. During the academic year, starting August 25, the shuttle will run every 10 minutes. The shuttle route is a loop from the southeast side of campus, to and around most of the Oval, across to the Lory Student Center, and down to Moby Arena.

The shuttle system is a partnership with the City of Fort Collins’ Transfort service. As part of the same funding package from the university, Transfort also is beginning service to the university’s Foothills campus, Veterinary Teaching Hospital and additional routes down Elizabeth Street.

Ride Transfort, including MAX for free

As a university employee, you may ride any Transfort line for free as part of your C2C benefits. This includes all bus routes and the city’s bus rapid transport system, MAX, will which provides service from south Fort Collins to downtown, stopping at stations at Prospect Road, University Avenue and Laurel Street, as it passes through campus. As part of the university’s financial package that helped launch Around the Horn and expand Transfort routes, MAX and all Transfort lines are free to students and employees, with a CSU ID.

For more information about Transfort routes, including bus lines, MAX, and Around the Horn, the university’s on-campus shuttle, visit

Tackle traveling on transit

Want to try transit, biking to work, or carpooling, but aren’t sure where to start? Parking and Transportation Services offers free alternative transportation training to employees to help faculty and staff find the best routes for their commute, download Transfort apps on their phones, navigate bike trails between campus and their home safely, and connect them with potential vanpool partners, among other benefits.
