Homeward Bound Program

The Homeward Bound Bus Charter Program provides students with discounted round-trip transportation from Arcata directly to San Francisco or Los Angeles. Service is offered for Fall Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break.

Homeward Bound Bus Information:

This year because of funding for basic needs we have the ability to offer the Homeward Bound Bus for free. This bus leaves from Cal Poly Humboldt’s campus and makes stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles and returns during fall, winter, and spring break. Please note that this service will not likely be free in the future. This program is intended to help students get home during break who would not otherwise be able to afford to travel. For more info please email basic-needs-website@humboldt.edu
