The UMass Commuter Options Program will help you get to campus. Mixing up your trips by using public transit, bicycling, walking, carpooling or vanpool helps to reduce the number of times you'll need to drive alone--which saves you money. Award-winning parking and public transit options balance convenience with flexibility.
The UMass Parking & Transit Services are committed to providing transportation options for the members of the campus community. Check out the available options that encourage you to leave your car at home and use more environmentally friendly methods to get onto campus.
UMass has partnered with NuRide, a free service which offers rewards for greener trips. NuRide can also help you find a carpool partner. Get rewards when you walk, bike, telecommute, carpool, or take the bus to campus.
UMass encourages student, faculty and staff to use an alternate mode of transportation as often as possible. Alternative Transportation promotes and encourages the use of a variety of modes of transportation (e.g. bicycling, walking, vanpooling, carpooling, riding transit) to get to, from and around campus instead of a single occupancy vehicle. We can all make a difference in improving our air quality!
