Transportation

Forget the car. Bike, walk or take the bus. Conventional transportation systems are major contributors to local pollution and global climate change. Our university has created a comprehensive Green Campus Transportation Plan to reduce automobile trips to campus by 20 percent.

 

A long history of accommodating commuters:

  • In 2003, UW Oshkosh contracted with the Oshkosh Transit System to allow students, faculty, and staff to ride the city bus system for free with a campus ID.
  • 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 percent biodiesel fuel mix for all vehicles and equipment that operate on diesel.
  • UWO community logs 101,000 rides on Oshkosh City buses in 2012. Read more...
