Transportation

Alternative transportation options on and around campus.

UWO has a long history of helping commuters minimize their carbon footprint and save money.

  • In 2003, UW Oshkosh contracted with the Oshkosh Transit System to allow students, faculty, and staff to ride the GO Transit city bus system for free with a campus ID. Please check the GO Transit route schedule for more information. You can also obtain route maps at Parking Services or at the Reeve Memorial Union information office. We have 5 bus stops on or near campus including
    • Algoma Boulevard --in front of Albee Hall
    • Algoma Boulevard --at Woodland Avenue
    • High Avenue --between Sage Hall & Kolf Sports Center
    • High Avenue --between Kolf Sports Center & the Parking Ramp
    • High Avenue --at Osceola Street
  • In 2006, the university began to convert the campus fleet to E-85 compliant vehicles, therefore phasing out gasoline-only vehicles.
  • In 2006, the facilities department switched to a 10% biodiesel fuel mix for all vehicles and equipment that operate on diesel.
  • In 2012, the UWO community logged 101,000 rides on Oshkosh City buses. Read more...

Walking

For students who use their feet as their main method of transportation, safety during all hours is our main concern. Grounds crews are dedicated to quick snow removal during the winter and Campus Police provide a Safe Walk program on and around campus to prevent crime.

Biking

Bike lanes along Algoma Boulevard and High Avenue provide quick, convenient access to classes, Polk Library, Reeve Memorial Union, and more. We have many bike racks located throughout campus (see map). For information about bicycle theft prevention, contact the University Police at 920-424-1216. The Student Recreation and Wellness Center maintains a bike repair shop and hires students to assist with repairs, maintenance, and upgrades.

Titan Transit

Titan Transit provides extended-hours service during the academic year after city bus lines stop running for the night. To download a map or for more information, please visit Titan Transit.

  • Evening Route 6-10 p.m. Monday-Saturday. This route runs from campus to the west side of town, along the frontage roads and back. This service is free for UW Oshkosh students, faculty and staff with a TitanCard. People not affiliated with the University can ride the routes for a $1 fare.
  • Late Night Route 10pm-3am Thursday-Saturday. This route runs through campus and north side off-campus housing, to downtown and back. Titan Transit Late Night Route is free to all riders.

Parking for fuel efficient and hybrid vehicles

  • We have designated parking for motorcycles or moped with a valid Motorcycle/Moped parking permit displayed. They can be found in lots 6a, 7, 11, 13, 18, 23, 25, South Gruenhagen area and the High Avenue parking ramp. These spaces are not available between Nov. 15 and April 15. Please see the parking map for lot locations.
  • Mopeds may be parked in approved bicycle racks for security purposes, but must still display valid motorcycle parking permits. (Mopeds may not be driven on sidewalks; walk mopeds to a bicycle rack. Driving on a sidewalk is in violation of Wisconsin State Statute 346.94, and such a violation would result in a fine and points against your driver’s license.)
  • We have 2 parking spaces with GE charging stations in the visitor lot and 2 in the first level of the High Avenue parking ramp. We also have 10 priority parking spaces for fuel-efficient vehicles at the Alumni Welcome and Conference Center.

Ridesharing Options

  • UWO's ZimRide Community: Whether you want to be a driver or passenger, our free & private ridesharing network is an easy way to coordinate your daily commute. Just log in with your netID to access our free, private ridesharing network of other UW Oshkosh students, staff or faculty. Save money, protect the environment and make a friend! There are plenty of other apps and programs like RidePost as well. Just remember, safety first! 
  • Enterprise CarShare:  As a member of the UW Oshkosh community, you can rent a car from campus for hourly or daily use.  This program allows licensed drivers under 21 and those with an international driver's license to rent cars as well.  The rental cars are centrally located in the parking deck across from Reeve Union.
