Alternative Transportation

This is How We Roll

Sustainable, affordable, efficient, and accessible transportation options help people travel while minimizing harm to the environment. In addition to providing a walkable/wheelable campus, Amherst provides a variety of sustainable transportation options, including bike rental programs, PVTA buses, shuttle services, and electric car charging stations.

What’s Next

  • Launching a student run campus bike shop that will provide maintenance and bike repair and fix up abandoned bikes for reuse.
  • Developing a campus bike rental / leasing program that will offer students an opportunity to lease a bike for a semester or for the academic year.
  • Further supporting and expanding the bike share program.
  • Developing more educational materials about alternative transportation methods in the area.
