Groome Transportation

For in-state travel, Groome Transportation offers more than a dozen daily trips between Flagstaff and Phoenix. Groome Transportation has three pick-up and drop-off sites on campus: the Skydome, parking lot P31, south of the campus parking garage on San Francisco St, and University North, the bus stop at N. San Francisco St & E Franklin Ave.

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 free 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 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.


Yellow bikes

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