TransportationThe KU Transportation organizations on campus, comprised of the KU Parking and Transit (including KU On Wheels, SafeRide, and SafeBus), and the KU Transportation Research Institute, and the KU Transportation Center, are taking steps towards a more sustainable experience on campus.
Current and planned efforts for transportation include:
- Major classroom buildings have been located with consideration of the ten-minute class hour change so that students have time to walk between classes, and traffic control booths are located at the entrances to the central campus to control and restrict traffic in that area to create a pedestrian-friendly campus and promote the use of sustainable modes of transportation on the central campus.
- University of Kansas students, faculty and staff can ride KU on Wheels and City of Lawrence buses for free by showing their KU Card upon boarding. For route information, please click here.
- Park & Ride provides free shuttle service to the parking lot on west campus, reducing traffic congestion near campus
- KU buses are currently operating on a 5% blend of biodiesel.
- The K-10 Connector, a service of The Jo, provides a connection between Johnson County Community College, the KU Edwards Campus, Haskell University, and the KU Lawrence Campus.
- Four campus departments operate electric vehicles, and the Public Safety office operates E-85 police cruisers and Segways for patrols.
- The Student Recreational Fitness Center Outdoor Pursuits offers a self-service bike repair shop with basic tools for maintaining bicycles.
