BYU-Idaho does not provide or sponsor any transportation for its students unrelated to approved academic classes. There are, however, several travel options offered by companies in the community. Shown above is a partial list of companies offering travel options. This list is provided for your convenience and to help you weigh the options and make decisions based on your own special needs and preferences. These listings are informational only. BYU-Idaho does not endorse any of these companies nor has BYU-Idaho investigated any of these companies to determine their safety record, their compliance with state or federal regulations, or their business standing. Before using any of these carriers, BYU-Idaho recommends that you determine that they are appropriate for your needs. Because service may be limited, the best plan for travel is to make plans early. Planning helps students and their families have the reassuring knowledge that things are taken care of in advance. It also helps the companies offer services to fill the students' needs.
