Valley Regional Transit: Stuff the Bus

Saturday, December 2

10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


The goal of Stuff the Bus is to fill ValleyRide buses with new, unwrapped toys (or gift cards) for children of all ages. The Salvation Army will distribute the items to families in need throughout the community in time for Christmas.


 Valley Regional Transit will provide the buses and drivers, and VRT and ValleyRide staff will 

 assist dozens of volunteers from the Salvation Army at the collectionsites. At the end of the 

 event, the toys will be bagged up and transported by bus to Salvation Army distribution 

 centers in Boise and Nampa.


The ValleyRide buses will be parked near the main entrances of the seven Fred Meyer stores in the 

 Treasure Valley:


  • 5230 Franklin Road on the Boise Bench
  • 3527 S. Federal Way in southeast Boise
  • 10751 W. Overland Road in southwest Boise
  • 5425 W. Chinden Blvd. in Garden City
  • 1850 E. Fairview Ave. in Meridian
  • 1400 W. Chinden Blvd. in Eagle
  • 50 2nd Street South in Nampa


In the 18 years Valley Regional Transit has participated in Stuff the Bus, more than 110,000 toys 

 have been donated.

Boise Public Works Department: Leaf Collection

Due to the incredible amount of leaves and compostable material being set out across Boise, there have been some delays in collection. Additional trucks and routes have been brought in to help. If your leaf bags or compost cart have been missed, please keep them out, as crews are working hard to get them collected as soon as possible. Please note, collection may occur in the evenings.


For any questions, please contact or (208) 345-1266.


Thank you for your patience and participation.

ACHD: Roadways to Bikeways Master Plan

ACHD is updating the 2009 Roadways to Bikeways Bike Master Plan.  The plan originally identified opportunities to enhance and expand the existing on-street bycycle network. It's time for an update!


We also have an interactive commenting map where we are seeking input on the regional bike network: Are there certain routes that are missing from the map that would improve regional connectivity? Are there routes shown that could be improved or modified? Let us know by commenting on the map. Links below:
