University of Wisconsin-Platteville encourages students, faculty, staff and guests to leave their cars at home and walk, bike, or take the bus around campus. According to the AAA, the average cost of car ownership in 2013, is $9,122 (full report). Not only can leaving your car at home help save money, but it may also help provide some free exercise, improve your mood, strengthen your bones, and even improve concentration and grades.
Here are just some of the ways that you can travel without your car in Platteville next year:
1. Take the Public Bus - free for students!
2. Rent a car by the hour.
3. Bring your bike.
4. Take a regional bus home at academic breaks.
5. Use Zimride or Rideboard (in the Markee Pioneer Student Center, by the Info Desk)
6. Use our City trail network.
Please explore the links above to learn more about these and other transportation options available at UW-Platteville, and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all.
