An easy way to get to Pocatello’s popular summer destinations returns next month.

Starting June 4, Pocatello Regional Transit will begin operating the Summer D Route. The modified route makes a stop at the Ross Park Aquatic Complex. The stop is just a short distance from Zoo Idaho, skatepark, and all the amenities of Lower Ross Park.

“You can catch a ride straight to Ross Park at the Marshall Public Library, the Idaho State University Pond Student Union, and the Westwood Mall to name a few pickup locations,” said Skyler Beebe, Pocatello Regional Transit Director. “Even if you’re not directly served by the D route, just tell one of our friendly drivers and they’ll help you make the right bus connection.”

“There’s so much to do at Ross Park and with the Summer D Route, you can do it all without the hassle of driving,” said John Banks, Parks and Recreation Director. “You can visit the animals at Zoo Idaho, keep cool at Ross Park Aquatic Complex pool, or just relax in the shade of the trees of the park. The route is just one of the ways we are helping Pocatello to ‘Play Often and Live Better.’”

The ride costs 50 cents for students with a valid student ID and $1 for adults. Children under eight ride free when accompanied by a parent or guardian.  

The route runs Monday through Friday 19 minutes after the hour starting at 8:19 a.m. and wrapping up at 5:19 p.m. through August 17.
