Getting Around Campus

Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA)

Fixed Route Service — Students and employees can get around campus using the BCRTA local and regional routes, which also provides transportation uptown, to several off-campus student housing areas, and to the Hamilton and Middletown campuses. Buses run daily during the fall and spring semesters, and winter and summer terms.  Students and employees who present a valid Miami University ID pay no fare to ride on the local and regional routes.

Any time fixed bus routes are running, BCRTA provides door-to-door transportation around campus and in the Oxford area. To utilize this service for more than three consecutive uses students or employees must have the appropriate forms filled out by a doctor and given to the BCRTA for continued service. Students and employees can call BCRTA at 513-785-5237 or 855-42-BCRTA (toll-free) for this service, which operates during the scheduled hours of regular BCRTA fixed route services.  Students and employees who present a valid Miami University ID pay no fare to use the ADA service.
