The Ryde is a shuttle service – powered by Student Movement Inc (SMI) – designed to move thousands of students between off-campus housing and the BYU campus. SMI worked closely with BYU and obtained an exclusive contract to start a pilot program for a campus shuttle. Ryde Shuttle is Cheaper, faster, more informative, and probably better looking than your ride. Rates start at $99.00 per semester. Visit the Student Movement website for more information.
Starting Fall Semester 2015 BYU will provide shuttle service to campus at no cost to students. The five shuttle routes to and from BYU and off-campus contracted housing will be free of charge to current BYU students. Each of the routes will run frequently throughout the day, with shuttles running on some routes every 15 to 20 minutes during high demand times: 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Three shuttle routes will cover the south-end of campus, another will be to the west of campus and the fifth one to the north end of campus by Wyview.
In order to provide for the shuttle, BYU will begin charging students to park in the majority of student lots on campus. Students will be charged $60 per semester for an on-campus parking permit. There will still be a few free student lots available: Lot 18 (south of the Information Technology Building), Lot 45 (west-stadium lot) and Lot 44 (south of the Wyview complex).
