Public transportation, walking, and bicycling are great ways to get around Platteville and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. You can do your part to help the environment, while using convenient and reliable ways to get around.
UW-Platteville partners with the city of Platteville to provide affordable, sustainable transportation options in our community that allow our students to come to campus without needing a personal vehicle. The Platteville Public Bus operates six days per week on a fixed schedule, and all UW-Platteville students ride free with their campus ID. Shared-ride taxi service is available seven days per week. Students with disabilities may contact Services for Students with Disabilities to obtain a voucher for the taxi.
UW-Platteville encourages the campus community to get around by bicycle and skateboard as much as possible. Bicycling and skateboarding both provide convenient modes of transportation to travel around the UW-Platteville campus and the city of Platteville.
You can help cut down on traffic and parking congestion, and you can save time, considering the time needed to park a car on each end of the journey.

Platteville has over 10 miles of public trails connecting campus to most areas in the city, a portion of which is lighted and paved. For the more adventurous, the east end of the trail connects to the regional trail network that can be taken all the way to Madison, Wisconsin; Freeport, Illinois; and beyond.
Increasingly, parents and guests are driving electric vehicles. UW-Platteville has two 80 AMP chargers, each with J-1772 plugs located in parking lot 33. The charging station is available free of cost, we only ask that drivers move their vehicles once the charge is complete so that the station is available for other users. Violators will be towed at the owner's expense.
