Local Transit

Free and inexpensive local transit options

If walking or biking aren't convenient, other local transit in Moscow is inexpensive and sometimes free!

SMART Transit

Please note: Fixed route resumed June 1. For physical distancing, buses will have limited seating. Be prepared to wait for the next bus if it is full. Avoid riding the bus if feeling ill. Please wear a face mask & distance yourself. More info available on SMART Transit's webpage.

SMART Transit’s Moscow Fixed Route service consists of two loops, one on the east side and the other on the west side of town. The routes cover diverse locations including high density living, medical, educational and shopping areas.

The fixed routes are FARE FREE!

The West Route covers the west side of Moscow and the U of I campus including stops at Deakin and College, Ash Street, Idaho Student Union Building (ISUB), Ag. Sci., Walmart, Moscow Family Medicine Quickcare, Winco, Palouse Mall, A Street, Rosauers, downtown and Gritman Medical Center.

The East Route covers the east side of Moscow from U of I campus including the Bruce M. Pitman Center, downtown, Rosauers, Moscow High School, East City Park, Aquatic Center, Moscow Junior High School, Skateboard Park, Latah County Fairgrounds, Eastside Marketplace and Styner Avenue.

Both routes leave the Moscow Intermodal Transit Center at 10 and 40 minutes after each hour from 6:40 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8:10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Riders can board the bus at any scheduled stop and at the Intermodal Transit Center.
