Valleyride: What’s Happening
» TEMPORARY BUS SERVICE CHANGES
Road construction, upcoming accessibility improvements to our bus stop system, and planned outdoor events may result in temporary route detours or the relocation of bus stops. The latest information about current changes in service are below:
CURRENT AND UPCOMING DETOURS
ROUTE 10 is on detour in the Pierce Park area due to road construction. Closed stops on the outbound are Castle and Stinger (temporary cone at Castle and Hill), Castle and Castle Hill, Castle and Eugene, Castle and Pierce Park, Pierce Park and Outlook and Pierce Park and Saxton. The outbound detour is right on Hill Road from Castle, turn left on Pierce Park, turn right on Tobi back on route. The inbound closed stops are the same as the outbound stops. The inbound bus will detour by making a left turn on Pierce Park (from Tobi), turn right on Hill Road to Castle, and turn left on Castle and back on route.
ROUTES 40, 42, 43, 44 and 45 - Construction work on University Drive at Boise State University has resulted in the relocation of two campus bus stops. A temporary stop at the bus shelter at University and Lincoln will replace the stop at the Lincoln Garage on University. Also, a temporary stop at Beacon and Grant will replace the stop at University and Grant. The temporary stops are expected to remain in place through the end of July.
Also, the stop at the Boise State Administration Building is currently closed due to construction. Routes 40, 42 and 45 will make the Student Union Building the last stop before turning around. The morning runs of Routes 43 and 44 will stop at the Student Union Building before continuing on to the airport, but will not be able to make a courtesy stop at Brady and University due to construction.
