The City Express is Keene’s Bus for Everyone, public transportation in the City of Keene. The service operates Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The City Express operates two routes stopping at 16 locations throughout the City, including major shopping areas and downtown, medical and recreational facilities and many residential areas. The City Express can also stop along the route if ‘flagged’ as long as it is safe to stop.


A third City Express route, the Campus/Community shuttle, operates during the Keene State College academic year; it does not operate during the summer or during the semester breaks. This route stops at locations on the Keene State College campus, the Riverside Plaza (Walmart, Olympia Sports, Verizon Wireless), Monadnock Marketplace (Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Pier 1, Dick’s Sporting Goods), and travels to the Market Basket grocery store in Swanzey.


All City Express buses are wheelchair lift equipped and meet the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act.


Easy-to-use bike racks are installed on all City Express buses. Each bus can accommodate two bicycles. Riders are responsible for loading and unloading their own bikes. If the rack is full, you will need to wait for the next bus. For safety reasons, bikes may not be brought inside the buses.
