Tiger Trails

The LSU Tiger Trails Transit System is a safe, convenient, and free bus service for LSU students, faculty, staff, and visitors, both on and off campus.  LSU contracts with First Transit to provide this service. Tiger Trails has improved features in place to increase safety and efficiency. With increased seating capacity and improved routes, our system will help to decrease vehicle congestion on and around campus. All buses are equipped with improved ventilation and bike racks to better serve passengers. All buses are equipped with global positioning devices, allowing passengers to monitor actual arrival times through real time visualization.

The following options are in place for passengers to monitor arrival and departure times of the Tiger Trails Transit System:

The Tiger Trails Transit System also features Fixed-Rider Routes to better serve daily-use passengers with quick and efficient schedules. They run on a consistent schedule and buses stop only at established, pre-determined stops. These routes will follow regular schedules Monday through Friday, on weekends, in between semesters with abbreviated or suspended service, on holidays, and during the summer.

In June 2016, LSU acquired 31 new buses, 25 of which that feature an exhaust reduction system, including diesel particulate filters and selective catalytic reducers in order to promote Campus Sustainability. These new buses will help LSU's fleet lower greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation on campus. The Tiger Trails bus station has committed to advanced recycling efforts and green cleaning products, as well as proper use, storage and disposal of all waste associated with maintenance activities. Also when passengers choose Tiger Trails instead of driving, they are reducing the number of vehicles on the road, thereby reducing traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
