CU Boulder Transportation Services worked with RTD to improve bus service between the Main and East campuses. Changes to two routes were made Aug. 27 and are tailored routes specifically and individually to the Discovery Drive and Marine Street areas of east campus.

RTD’s Stampede route was shortened to provide improved and dedicated service to the Discovery Drive portion of east campus and eliminated the need for the CU-run Discovery Express, which ceased service on Friday, Aug. 24. Resources from the Discovery Express were reallocated to the Marine Street Express bus, providing direct service between Marine Street and main campus.

RTD’s Stampede

Starting Monday, Jan. 14, the Stampede's East Campus terminal will shift from the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building stop on Innovation Drive to the stop at Discovery Drive and Colorado Avenue in front of the Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC), eliminating layovers by the biotech building. Schedule adjustments will also be made.

More details about the route and schedule can be found on the Stampede page on RTD's website.

Ongoing updates on all campus bus routes can be found on CU Boulder's Parking and Transportation website.

Buff Bus

The familiar CU-branded Buff Buses provide the ride for the new Marine Street Express route.

Marine Street Express

In response to rider feedback, Marine Street Express (Buff Bus) departure times will shift five to seven minutes earlier, effective Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Departures from the Marine Street stop near the Administrative and Research Center (ARCE) and Transportation Center on East Campus shift to 10 minutes and 40 minutes past the hour, between 6:40 a.m. and 6:40 p.m. Departures from Main Campus from the University Memorial Center are estimated at 23 minutes and 53 minutes past the hour, between 6:53 a.m. and 6:53 p.m.

The Marine Street Express is a campus shuttle route connecting the Marine Street area of East Campus to Main Campus, operating Monday through Friday with no Saturday/Sunday service. This express route serves two stops along Marine Street and three on Main Campus: the Engineering Center/Lot 436, the Center for Community (C4C) and the University Memorial Center (UMC).
