Yes and no.

According to https://parking.uark.edu/parking-services/faq.php

How is Razorback Transit funded?

Razorback Transit is funded by Federal Transit Administration Grants, U of A Student Transportation Fees, the U of A Administration, and the City of Fayetteville.

Why do non-students get to ride the buses?

Razorback Transit is a federally funded public transportation provider. By Federal law anyone is allowed to use these resources.
#Lilly on Apr 16, 2015 :
Actually the razorback transit system is paid for by university students as part of their tuition so it is NOT free for everyone, there is just one group of people paying for everyone to be able to access the system.. NWA could use more public transit where the cost was distributed to all riders.
#Debra on Apr 28, 2013 :
he razorback bus transit is free to ride to anyone who wishes to ride it. Locals, non-locals, students and non-students all free of charge to ride the razorback bus year-round. No Id required.
