Campus Agreements[edit]

Indiana State University students, faculty and staff are able to ride the bus for free by showing their university ID.[4] This is a result of a contract with the university where it pays the transit utility $110,000 per semester, which is matched with federal transit funds.[5]
Ivy Tech students and staff have the choice to ride the Terre Haute City Bus as well as the CampusTransit Shuttle Bus at no charge by showing a valid Ivy Tech ID.[6]

Terre Haute transit uses a number of "Paratransit" vehicles manufactured by StarTrans. Fleet numbers range from 30-42 and a StarTrans Replica Trolley. Their fleet also includes two Azure Citibuses, hybrid type vehicles, that were entered service in May 2010.
