Commuting

Bicycles

The University and department promote the use of bicycles as alternative transportation. State code prohibits parking bicycles anywhere inside state buildings. Bikes inside pose a hazard in emergencies and during bad weather they bring in considerable dirt and water. Bikes found parked in CEE buildings will be immediately removed for safety reasons. Locks will be cut if necessary. Repeat offenders will have their bikes impounded by UW Police. Bike racks are located in several areas around the buildings and bike lockers are available, but there are delays in getting assignment to a locker. Bike locker assignments are made by UW Commuter Services. Skateboards and folded push scooters can be brought into buildings, but once inside they may not be ridden.  This allowance does not include electric or gas powered scooters.

Parking

Commuter Services offers a wide range of parking products and services designed specifically for faculty, staff, students, visitors and departments.

Motorcycles/Motor Scooters

Just like cars, UW charges for parking motorcycles and motor scooters on campus. The day and monthly permit cost are considerable less than a car permit. Check with UW Parking Services for rates. Parking Services provide separate parking areas for two wheel motor vehicles. Motorcycles and motor scooters parked outside of designated parking areas are subject to ticketing. At no time is it appropriate to park a motorized vehicle in the bicycle parking area or inside department buildings.

U-PASS

The U-PASS is a bus pass plus more. The U-PASS provides faculty, staff and students with a variety of low-cost transportation options—from buses, commuter train service and light rail, to vanpooling and discounted impromptu carpooling. More information regarding the U-PASS is available from Commuter Services.
