Regional/County Bus

The regional or county bus is called Regional Transit Authority (RTA), serving San Luis Obispo County from San Miguel to Santa Maria, and the North Coast to Cambria, with stops at Cal Poly and at the transit hub in downtown San Luis Obispo (SLO) to accommodate any transfers you may need. Cal Poly has subsidized RTA bus passes for our students and employees since 1990 thus allowing for a reduced-price 30-day pass for Cal Poly riders. 30-day passes available for the frequent rider and $15.00 stored value passes are available for those wanting the freedom of an occasional ride, and daily passes for those wanting to try it out. Purchase from Token Transit through SLO Regional Transit Authority. Check their website frequently for COVID restrictions and regulations specific to their system, and stay safe on your commute.

City Bus

The city bus, SLO Transit, serves campus directly. Since 1985, Cal Poly has financially subsidized the city bus system, allowing our students, staff, and faculty to ride the bus at no cost to the rider. Funding comes from parking citation revenue, not from state general funds, nor from student tuition or fees. Find the bus route you need by checking out the SLO Transit Schedule. Check their website frequently for COVID restrictions and regulations specific to their system, and stay safe on your commute.
