Public transportation in Lawrence and its surrounding areas may not be as comprehensive as you are used to in your home country. There are two bus systems in Lawrence, one operated by the City of Lawrence and one operated by the University of Kansas. Both of these bus systems will be free when you have your KU ID card (except K-10 connector). You will be able to obtain your KU ID card at your International Student Orientation registration or your check-in with International Support Services.
Buses run Monday through Saturday, with reduced services on Saturday and when classes are not in session. This means for a large portion of the summer months there is reduced services.
SafeRide and SafeBus, operated by KU Parking & Transit, also offer safe transportation options for students at night. SafeRide operates during the fall, spring, and summer semesters and SafeBus operates during the fall and spring semesters. For more information and for schedules, please visit their website.
