Convenient, affordable ways to get home without driving
Many students and their families have told us the only reason they bring a vehicle to campus is to drive home on breaks. While this is the only way to get home for some, most Vandals have a number of other options that can save money and reduce stress.
Vandal Break Bus and Academic Break Transportation
Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) and the Office of the Dean of Students provide chartered buses to students for low-cost, safe and convenient transportation to Boise and Idaho Falls for fall, winter and spring breaks. Visit the Vandal Break Bus page for details and reservation information.
For students traveling to the Tri-Cities, Portland or the Seattle area, regional carrier Wheatland Express offers its "Vacation Express" service that aligns with U of I's academic break schedule. Students traveling to the Spokane area can contact Northwestern Trailways for information on daily bus service between Moscow and Spokane.
