On a thriving university campus, people are on the move. From work to class and everywhere in between, students, faculty and staff travel to, from and around campus. Every year, campus sustainable transportation options grow, reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions while creating a more pedestrian-friendly and less congested campus.

Alternative Transportation

NC State aims to reduce traffic congestion, which creates a more pedestrian and bike-friendly campus through the campus bus system, bicycling and pedestrian commute programs, carpool and vanpool incentives, park and ride locations, car sharing services and a discounted regional bus pass.
