Bus Services

Regional/County Bus

The regional or county bus is called Regional Transit Authority, or RTA, serving from San Miguel to Santa Maria, with stops at Cal Poly and at the transit hub in San Luis Obispo for any transfers you may need. Cal Poly has subsidized RTA bus passes for our students and employees 1990 thus allowing for a reduced-price 30-day pass for Cal Poly riders. For more information, visit SLO Regional Transit Authority.

City Bus

The city bus, SLO Transit, serves campus directly. Since 1985, Cal Poly has financially supported 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.
