Commuting to Campus


All active students, staff, and faculty can ride SLO Transit for free by swiping their Cal Poly ID (PolyCard). 

The San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority (RTA) provides intercommunity public transpiration. RTA's service area includes all of San Luis Obispo county and extends into Santa Barbara county to the south. Many of the routes include stops at Cal Poly and at the transit hub in downtown San Luis Obispo to accommodate any transfers you may need. SLO Transit connects the city of San Luis Obispo and the campus directly. Find the bus route you need by checking out the  SLO Transit Schedule.

Use the Bus Tracker App to find where the bus is, locate the closest stop to your present location, and get Rider Alert information. Get it on your computer, from Apple App Store or Google Play.
