Consider all transportation options before purchasing a parking permit.
Campus Shuttle - The Eagle Run shuttle gets you around campus and town. Stops include Wal-Mart, Wegman's, the central business district of Brockport, Brockport Crossings, and College Suites. This shuttle also services the airport, Amtrak, and Trailways hubs in the Rochester area during semester breaks.
Rideshare - This FREE online tool helps match riders and drivers from similar areas traveling to the same destination - either for a regular carpool relationship or for a one-time trip. If a regular ridesharing relationship is formed, commuting students can apply for a Carpool Permit. Carpool permit holders receive premium parking spaces, 5 day passes per semester, a guaranteed ride home in emergencies, plus save money on permit costs!
Hertz on Demand - For the student living just off campus, two vehicles will be available on campus for students to rent for errands and short trips. Students will need to be a member of the Hertz on Demand program to take advantage of this option. Membership is free.
Taxi on Demand - This is a pre-paid card that can be used to call and pay for a taxi when it's not convenient or safe to drive or walk. It's accepted by thousands of cab companies nationwide, and by four cab companies in the Brockport/Rochester area.
