At UNC Asheville, we strive to cultivate sustainable, safe, and healthy habits within our community. This includes promoting alternative transportation methods (also known a multimodal transportation) such as carpooling, bicycling and walking. Our campus contains walking trails, a bike shop, as well as connecting to a walkable greenway from Merrimon Ave. that leads all the way to Downtown Asheville. Public Safety funds a Ridesharing board and provides free rides on city transit buses.
Our mission doesn’t stop at mutli-modal transportation. Transportation Services also offers regular Travel-Safe programs, providing car inspections, advise, basic oil changes, and free car-safety giveaways.
