Decrease how much you drive and you’ll save money while also reducing air pollution, saving time and cutting your carbon pawprint (and probably a lot of parking tickets, too). Give these driving alternatives a try:

ride-the-wolflineRide the Wolfline

Hop on the Wolfline, a convenient network of campus buses powered by cleaner, low-sulfur diesel. Going to watch the Pack play at Carter-Finley or PNC Arena? Take the Red Terror bus to football and basketball games to help reduce congestion and enjoy curbside drop off at the game. Don’t want to pay for a campus parking pass? At Carter-Finley Stadium, Westgrove and the Food Lion at Avent Ferry Shopping Center, you can park for free and ride to campus on the Wolfline. Dig downtown? Use the Wolfprowl transit service to go downtown 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Need to go off campus? With the GoPass (free for students), travel CAT and Triangle Transit buses for free.

ride-a-bikeRide a Bike

Bike around campus and shed roughly 50 calories per mile. If you don’t have a bike, rent from Wolf Wheels, located at the Outdoor Adventures desk in Carmichael Gym. If cruising around campus isn’t your thing, strap on your walking shoes and walk to class to burn calories and avoid driving.

carpoolRide in a Carpool

Gather some friends and go places together. You’ll save gas and money, reduce air pollution and have more fun. Let’s face it, traveling with someone is way more interesting than driving alone.
