Transportation

Oklahoma State University's Department of Parking and Transportation Services has made sustainability a top priority. They even published their own Sustainability Plan in November of 2020. 

Their mission is to "support the campus community by providing for safe, efficient access, and mobility in an environmentally responsible manner. 

Their vision is "to be a premier transportation and parking organization, providing an innovative, sustainable program which supports excellent in education, research, and public service. 

OSU's Department of Parking and Transportation Services' Sustainability Plan is working to address the following concerns: 

 

Interested in reducing your footprint by changing the way you get from A to B? Great! There are a few different ways to do that.

Bikes Parked

Big Orange Bus(BOB)

 

Walk: Walking is not only healthy, but it is the most sustainable way to get around! NOTE: Sidewalks and crosswalks are recommended for walkers.


Bike: You can buy a bike at several different shops in Stillwater or rent one from OSU through Orange Ride for just $35/semester! Before you start pedaling, make sure to go to the Multi-Modal Transportation Terminal at Monroe and Hall of Fame to get a free bike parking permit.


Ride: Riding one of OSU's Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)-powered buses is cheaper than driving and reduces per-rider footprint! Student fees pay for part of its operation, so students aren't charged to ride! If you're just going across campus, hop on the orange or black route and take a seat. Need to go further? Shopping, dining, entertainment, off-campus housing, and plenty of places where students are employed are all served by the bus. Use the bus tracker online or download the app to help you find the nearest bus stop, when the next bus will arrive at your stop, and where each of the buses go. 

The Big Orange Bus (BOB) is a shuttle service between the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses. A one-way trip costs $7.50 for students! Like the city bus, it's cheaper than driving yourself, and it decreases the per-rider carbon footprint! Find more information here.
