Alternate Transportation

The concept of transportation alternatives is not a new one; it is, very simply, finding an alternative to one-car, one-driver commuting. The alternative may be in the form of a carpool, transit bus, bicycle, moped/motorcycle, or as a pedestrian. Each of these alternatives offers benefits to the user as well as to the University and the community including:

  • Saving money

  • Saving vehicle wear and tear

  • Saving gas and reducing energy consumption

  • Reducing traffic and parking congestion

  • Providing an environment to meet new friends, and it is better for the environment.
