Carnegie Mellon encourages our students, faculty, and staff to use more sustainable and alternative transportation options to commute to campus and to get around town. Here are ways CMU supports these options:
The League of American Bicyclists recognizes CMU as a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly University.
The Carnegie Mellon campus has many bike parking options. Visit the Map of Campus Bike Rack Locations. There are also bike-repair stations at three locations around campus (Hamburg Hall, East Campus Garage, and Tepper).

All CMU students and employees can ride Pittsburgh Regional Transit (PRT) for free using a CMU ID card. Upon entering a bus, just tap your ID! This works on PRT buses, light rail cars, and inclines.
Those that need to get to Oakland, Squirrel Hill, and Shadyside can use CMU's shuttles and evening escort service, as well the University of Pittsburgh's shuttle services, to get around campus and neighboring areas.
Shuttles are free to students and employees – just show your CMU ID upon boarding. For details on CMU routes visit the Shuttle Schedule page.
