Transportation Options

Cache Valley is a beautiful place, surrounded by mountains and endless recreation opportunities.

  • Logan frequently tops lists of safest metropolitan areas in the US.

  • In 2014, Livability.com ranked Logan as the second best college town.

  • In 2017, League of American Cyclists awarded Logan City and USU silver ratings for being bike friendly.

Luckily, you can enjoy and preserve these opportunities even in your daily commute. For 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 our vehicular emissions (and associated health issues). Help keep our Valley a healthy place to live. Many fine neighborhoods are within walking distance of USU. With two fare-free bus systems, Zimride rideshare, bike routes, and sidewalks, many families and students find they can save money, stay active, and minimize vehicular emissions through their commute.
