This means you can whip out your phone and pull up a map of the city’s bus routes to see each bus moving along the streets of Eau Claire like you’re James Freaking Bond. The map not only displays routes and real-time bus movement, it also shows you where the bus stops are, and it can even estimate your wait time. LIKE MAGIC.

Just this past spring, both Lyft and Uber expanded in Eau Claire, so if you need a ride, pull up their apps and get cruising.
Pedicabs are bicycle-drawn carriages, very much like rickshaws. In the warmer months, they cover Water Street, Barstow Street and everywhere in between. Look out for them late at night as well around Water Street. Drivers work for tips, so be generous – especially when it’s hot out.
Most Eau Claire Transit buses have free wi-fi, so get some work (or Facebook) in as you ride.
