Groome Transportation

For in-state travel, Groome Transportation offers more than a dozen daily trips between Flagstaff and Phoenix. The NAU location for pick-up and drop-off is at the Health and Learning Center (HLC) on the north end of campus.

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.



Two shuttle bus routes serve north and south campus during the academic year. Visit the Shuttle page for details and hours of operation.

Mountain Line & Mountain Link

Flagstaff’s Mountain Line bus service offers a high-frequency bus route serving NAU, downtown Flagstaff, and the Woodlands Village corridor. NAU students can show their JacksCard ID to ride the Mountain Line for free. University employees can ride all Mountain Line routes at no charge. Simply download the NAUgo app to your phone from either the App Store on iPhones or Google Play on androids to access your free ecoPASS. Alternately, employees may pick up a pass from NAU’s University Transit Services office.


Yellow bikes

The university’s Yellow Bike Program offers free bike rentals for up to seven days for students, staff, and faculty.
