Homeward Bound Program

 

 

SOLD OUT!!!! 

 

 

 Are you still trying to figure out how to get home and back to Humboldt for Fall Break? 

If so, HSU may be able to help. 

The Homeward Bound Bus Charter Program provides students with discounted round-trip transportation from Arcata directly to San Francisco or Los Angeles.  Service will be offered on November 18 to both San Francisco and Los Angeles and a return trip to Humboldt on November 25. Fees are $115 per student to Los Angeles and $95 per student to San Francisco.  This is a great deal for students and costs less than published fares with Greyhound. 

To purchase your round trip ticket simply follow these steps:  Visit the MyHumboldt portal and click on your Student Center.  Once in the Student Center, select “Make a Payment” under the Finances area.  This will take you to another screen where you need to select “Make a Payment” again.  After that, you will see a menu of offerings from which you can select the Homeward Bound Bus Charter Program and then continue through the reservation and purchasing process

Once your reservation is complete, you will receive a confirmation letter from Parking & Commuter Services which provides more detail regarding the pickup/drop off locations and times, baggage restrictions, and general trip information concerning how to locate the charter bus, the intended route and expected stops for rest, stretching and food as well as arrival at your destination.  

We encourage you to reserve your space as soon as possible as seats are limited
