Transportation Options

Below are some transportation options you can use to plan for a safe way home for you and your friends if you choose to drink.

Cyride Moonlight Express

Moonlight Express offers a free, safe ride when regular fixed route service ends on Friday and Saturday nights from 10:30 pm to 3:00 am (phones shut off at 2:30 am) when ISU is in session only during the fall and spring semesters (mid-August through early May). Moonlight Express does not operate during the summer.  It consists of shuttle bus routes running to campustown, downtown, west Ames, and southeast Ames, and door-to-door buses operating in the areas of the city not covered by the shuttle routes.
