RIDER ALERT! CHANGES TO DOWNTOWN BOISE TRANSIT CENTER

   Changes to some of the downtown Boise locations where ValleyRide buses stage were implemented Tuesday, May 27th. These changes are necessary due to the construction of the downtown Boise multimodal center. A section of Main Street between 8th Street and Capitol Boulevard will be excavated as part of the process to build the underground multimodal center. These changes in routing are expected to remain in place until summer 2016.
   The transfer zones that are closed:

  • Zone 2 at Main and 9th, which serviced routes 8X, 9, 9X, 10, 11 and 14.
  • Zone 3 at Main and 8th, which serviced routes 2, 4, 16 and 17.

   Routes using these zones will now stage on Idaho Street (except for routes 4-5, which will stage at 9th and Grove). The Idaho Street bus staging area will expand to include the north side of the street between 8th and 9th

Inter county routes 40 and 42-44 also will be impacted by the closure once the buses reach downtown. We have set up an information page that provides more details about the service changes. READ MORE
