University of Iowa Student Government has worked in collaboration with Parking and Transportation to facilitate a low or no-cost airport transportation option. The transportation option is a pilot program offered by UISG and continues to evolve as we evaluate the performance of the service and the needs to students. The service provides transportation from the university campus to the Eastern Iowa Airport. For any questions, comments, or concerns, please email University of Iowa Student Government.
