to my knowledge, ValleyRide is the company that boise uses for its transit system.
a quote from valleyride.org:
sadly, i dont know if you will be able to carry openly if you plan to ride the bus, looking at policy 2.3
Q. WHAT ARE YOUR POLICIES FOR BUS RIDERS?
A. While on board the bus, we ask that you observe a few courtesies to make your bus ride easier, safer and a more pleasant experience for yourself and other passengers.
What you cannot do:
1). Smoke or drink alcohol
2). Board through the rear door
3). Refuse to pay the fare
5). Use profanity, or engage in disruptive behavior
6). Threaten or harass the driver or other passengers
<<<<What you cannot bring aboard:>>>>
1). Open food or drink containers
2). Flammables (such as gas cans)
4). Strollers, grocery carts, etc. that are too large to fit between the rows of seats
5). Animals (except service animals) that are not in an approved container that can fit on your lap
What you should do:
1). Wear shirts and shoes
2). Listen to music only through headphones and keep the volume low enough so other riders can't hear it
3). Remain seated while bus is in motion (when possible)
4). Keep your feet off the seats
5). Keep your hands, arms and head inside the bus. Do not shout out the window.
6). Respect fellow riders - no loud talking with passengers or on your cell phone!
No refunds or replacement bus passes for purchased, lost, or stolen passes.
downtown is small enough that you can walk most anywhere there so the bus may not be necessary, would have been a great experience though.
