Transportation Around Campus

Get where you need to go

Are you an incoming student and don't have a car to bring to campus? Don't worry, we've got you covered. UW-Eau Claire offers a variety of other services for you to use to get around. Below, you can explore the different options ranging from bus and shuttle services to bike rental.

Buses & Shuttles

UW-Eau Claire partners with Eau Claire Transit to provide local bus service which is paid for with student segregated fees. With two bus routes and in coordination with Eau Claire City Transit, travel to the upper campus Bollinger Fields and Imperial Circle Apartments area or the Water Street area. Simply show your Blugold ID and ride the bus at no additional cost.

Route 9 (lower campus) buses circulate every 10 minutes.

Route 19 (upper campus) buses circulate 12-13 minutes from February 4-March 22.

Bus Schedule

We are aware that many of our students are from Minnesota and the surrounding Wisconsin areas.  For this reason, we promote a bus service that travels longer distances to get out of town students without a car home. Jefferson Lines is available from Minneapolis, MN to Milwaukee, WI with stops in St. Paul, Menomonie, Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Stanley, Abbotsford, Wausau, Wittenburg, Shawano, Green Bay, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan.

Another bus option out of town students can utilize is the Badger Bus. The Badger Buss service is available between UWEC, UW Madison, and UW Milwaukee. For more information visit:

While not in coordination with UWEC, the Greyhound Bus can get students where they need to go.  For more information visit:

Parking and Transportation Services offers an on-campus service for students and staff with permanent or temporary disabilities. The Conveyance Van travels between Upper and Lower campus, and shuttles between academic buildings.

The Housing and Residence Life Office at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire provides the Campus Cab shuttle service for students. The service provides an on-call shuttle van during limited hours each evening to and from on-campus locations such as any of the Residence Halls, Hilltop Center, Crest Wellness Center, Davies Center, Academic Buildings, and McIntyre Library. The service will also transport to and from any location within the area depicted on the map below, as well as to and from Priory Hall.

Priory is a residence hall located a few miles off campus. Because of this, we want to be sure we give all students the opportunity to live there with means to get to class. Parking permits are required to park at The Priory with the Priory shuttle transporting faculty, staff or student daily and at regular intervals. 

Simply show your Blugold ID and ride the shuttle for free.
