Leaving your car at home won't leave you stranded. Before purchasing a parking permit, consider these transportation options available to you:
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.
Brockport's Fast TRAX - This free bike borrowing program allows students to borrow a bike from one of the four hub locations on campus for a 24-hour period. This is a great way to run errands or get exercise. Long-term bike borrowing is available for a nominal fee.
Rideshare - This free online tool helps match riders and drivers from similar areas traveling to the same destination.
Hertz on Demand - Two vehicles are 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.
