The main route, with service every 30 minutes, runs between 10th and Blaine/Cleveland in Caldwell and 2nd/3rd and 11th/12th in Nampa. This main corridor runs continuously along the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard, deviating only to serve Karcher Mall and some adjacent retail centers to the west.
Buses running north on this route are designated 52 or 54, referring to the two branches in Caldwell. Buses running south are designated 51 or 53, for the two branches in Nampa. Each branch is served by every other bus on the main route, for 60-minute service.
Oncoming buses (Routes 51-54) on the route are scheduled to be at the Nampa Civic Center area at the same time. This permits riders to transfer to travel from one Nampa branch to the other. Without transferring, riders from all parts of Nampa would have through service to Caldwell, and vice versa.
