Transportation

Getting around while you’re on SU’s campus is quick, convenient and sustainable. For those who are able, the entire Main Campus area is totally walkable. The campus is bike-able, too; SU has installed bicycle racks near most academic and residential buildings.  Main campus connects to an evolving city-wide network of bike lanes and other infrastructure.

SU’s South Campus is also walkable and bike-able. And if you have about a half-hour, walking between South and Main Campus is pretty easy (it’s also a great way to stay in shape). Biking between the two campuses takes about ten minutes.

Of course, riding the bus on and near campus is free for SU community members. Check the appropriate bus schedule if you have any concerns. Then just show your SU ID card to the bus driver and find a seat.

There are low-cost, low-impact ways to travel, whether it’s around Syracuse or away from Central New York.  If you’re going somewhere that public transit doesn’t serve, SU’s on-campus Zipcar is a convenient option.

If you commute to campus, whether you’re a student or an employee, here are some tips for both saving money and reducing your climate impact. Zimride is another great option, available exclusively to the Syracuse University community. It offers convenient a rideshare option to students, faculty and staff.

SU departments also do their part to travel sustainably. Public Safety officers patrol the campus on bicycles, and many departments use electric vehicles for on-campus transportation.
