Metro Area Transit (MATBUS)
NDSU and the City of Fargo has established an agreement with the Metropolitan Area Transit System, better known as “MATBUS” to provide a mass transit solution for NDSU students. MATBUS is the premiere public transit system serving the cities of Fargo and Moorhead with service to West Fargo and Dilworth. The MATBUS system is operated by the cities of Fargo and Moorhead, working together to ensure that comprehensive mass transit services are available across the metro area. MATBUS appreciates its customers’ comments, suggestions, and feedback welcoming everyone to ride with MATBUS.
Bison Roam Free or the U-PASS program with MATBUS
The U-Pass program offers unlimited rides to NDSU students, faculty and staff on any MATBUS route free of charge by showing a valid NDSU Bison ID card when boarding. Fixed MATBUS routes connect at transfer points, allowing riders to get anywhere being served by simply transferring onto another MATBUS route.
No monetary value is ever removed from your Bison ID card when using MATBUS
Official visitors to the NDSU campus who do not possess a valid Bison ID card are still welcome to ride on routes 13U, 31, 32E, 32W, 33, 34 and 35 free of charge; simply tell the bus driver you are visiting the NDSU campus.
