We all continue to benefit from the actions of our responsible community members who understand clearly the transportation options that foster good environmental practices at the University of Miami. Transportation accounts for the second largest source of the campus emissions footprint. The University of Miami’s transportation initiatives can serve as a model for the region.
The University strives to maintain a campus-based multi-model transportation system, with an emphasis on integration and coordination of transportation modes this ensures accessible attractive and economically viable transportation options that meet the needs of the students, faculty, staff and visitors. Our goal is to also educate all our visitors commuting to campus by providing transportation options and alternative recommendations that serve our community at large.
Transportation models and services we promote:
• Solutions to mitigate and reduce the impacts of vehicular traffic on the environment on campus and in surrounding adjacent city streets with emphasis on alternatives to the automobile including walking, bicycling, public transit, vehicle pooling and vehicle sharing
• Awareness of discount and connecting services for commuter members and information on commuter use of public transportation. We are also in the process of developing a ride-share social network for our commuter students, faculty and staff
• Encourage the University Community to learn more about the Ibis Walking Trail, U Waking Canes, UBike, Getting to Campus, Getting Around Campus and Getting Around Town programs and services. Learn more about BIKESAFE and upcoming UBike events and how you can get collaborate and get started.
