Transportation

Transportation

Flagstaff and the university offer a number of transportation options for getting to campus and getting around campus once you’re here.


Getting to Campus

Conveniently located at the junction of two interstate highways, I-40 and I-17, Flagstaff has an airport and is served by interstate bus and train service and an in-state shuttle.

Arizona Shuttle

For in-state travel, Arizona Shuttle offers more than a dozen daily trips between Flagstaff and Phoenix. The Shuttle has two pick-up and drop-off sites on campus: the Skydome and parking lot P31, south of the campus parking garage on San Francisco St.


Getting Around Campus

NAU’s Flagstaff campus offers pedestrian-friendly paths, walkways, and trails for exploring, but sometimes even a Lumberjack’s fleet foot isn’t the best way to get from point A to point B. Choose from among several free or low-cost options for traversing the two-mile-long campus.

Shuttle

Two free shuttle bus routes serve north and south campus during the academic year. You can download a free mobile app or use the mobile website to view the shuttle locations in real time. Visit the Shuttle page for details and hours of operation.

On a cloudy day, a Mountain Line bus waits for students with its doors open at a location off campus.

Mountain Line & Mountain Link

Flagstaff’s Mountain Line bus service offers the Mountain Link (Route 10), a high-frequency bus route serving NAU, downtown Flagstaff, and the Woodlands Village corridor. NAU students can show their JacksCard ID to ride Mountain Link for free. University employees can pick up a free ecoPASS from NAU’s Parking and Shuttle Services office and then ride all Mountain Line routes at no charge.
