Through sustainable transportation, FSU can create a connected campus community. Students living on and off campus can use more sustainable transportation by renting bikes through a Sustainable Campus program or ride FSU’s public transportation system. Sustainable transportation provides a variety of benefits, such as saving money, conserving energy, living a healthy and active lifestyle, and reducing carbon emissions. Walking, bicycling, skateboarding, carpooling, and taking the bus are all viable options for commuting around campus and Tallahassee.
