Alternative Transportation

What is alternative transportation?

It’s any mobility option other than a personally owned, single-occupancy car or truck. Walking, bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, public transit, car share, ride share, carpools and vanpools are all examples of alternative transportation.

Why is it important for U of I?

While our campus is surrounded by hundreds of square miles of wide open spaces, our little one-square mile campus and the adjacent one-square mile downtown area of Moscow are pockets of urban living. Lots of buildings and people living, working and learning in close proximity. As U of I enrollment expands and the area’s population density increases, it’s imperative that we start acting like other urban communities by increasing alternative transportation options, scope and use. When it’s a workable option, utilizing alternative transportation saves money, time and stress while improving the overall health of our community.
