The Peay Pickup and CTS Bus Service
Get around campus on The Peay Pickup!
In a partnership with the Clarksville Transit System (CTS), APSU provides students, faculty and staff free transportation around campus via the Peay Pickup and free transportation around the city on CTS buses.
CTS operates the two Peay Pickup routes from 7:30 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday-Friday, through final exams each semester. The Peay Pickup routes run on the north and south side of the campus, with Marion Street being the dividing line. Each bus takes approximately 5-6 minutes to complete a route circuit. Please have your University Peay Pickup card and Govs I.D. ready when boarding. To catch the Peay Pickup, just flag it down or wait at a bus sign.
APSU students, faculty and staff must show the Peay Pickup operator a valid Peay Pickup card and a valid Govs I.D. card to ride for free. Cards are distributed by the Parking & Transportation Office.
Peay Pickup bus rides are available for full fare to those without the valid University Peay Pickup card and a valid Govs I.D. card. Visit The Peay Pickup website at www.apsu.edu/police/bus and click on “Peay Pickup Route” for the trolley route around campus.
