Transportation options:Cache Valley is a beautiful place to live, ringed by mountains that provide endless outdoor recreation opportunities.
  • In 2005 and 2007, Logan was ranked as the #1 safest metropolitan area in the US.
  • In 2009, Newsmax magazine ranked it #10 in its list of the "Top 25 Most Uniquely American Cities and Towns.”
  • In 2013, League of American Cyclists gave USU a Silver rating for being a bike friendly campus.

Luckily, you can enjoy and preserve these opportunities even in your daily commute. For a few days and sometimes weeks each winter, our lovely mountains contribute to inversions, where a layer of warmer air sits like a lid on our valley, holding in cold air and all of our vehicular emissions. As the population in Cache Valley grows, so grow potential emissions and the associated health issues. USU is actively working to make our Valley a healthier place to live. Cache Valley features several transportation options and many fine neighborhoods within walking distance of the university. We have two fare-free bus systems, and we're home to numerous cycling events. With busses, Zimride, carshare, rideshare services, bike routes, and sidewalks, many families and students find they can save money, stay active, and minimize vehicular emissions by using a variety of transportation options.
