Commuter Solutions

UW Transportation Services offers many commuter solutions for faculty, staff, and students to encourage use of active and alternative transportation methods.

Solutions such as the campus bus and discounted employee bus passes, carpool and vanpool parking, the emergency ride home (ERH) program, and free route planning assistance help reduce the demand for parking and parking costs.

UW-Madison has been recognized as a Platinum Bike Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists. UW-Madison has also earned a Best Universities for Commuters designation.
