Transportation is one of the biggest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions; therefore Georgia Southern University is always looking for ways to make the University a pedestrian friendly campus, where the quality of student life and overall air quality is improved by keeping vehicles on the perimeter of campus. To help meet this goal, in 2005 the University rolled out a public transit system. The transit system has two bus routes departing the Paulson Stadium parking lot every 3-4 minutes from 7 a.m. through 4 p.m. on weekdays. The buses begin with diesel buses then switched to cleaning burning Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Operators generally say they are quieter, have lower maintenance cost, longer life cycle emissions and vehicle exhaust emissions are substantially cleaner than conventional fuel.
The University also has a campus cycle program!
The Campus Cycle program is designed to reuse abandon or donated bicycles from campus and beyond to establish a bicycle membership program. This program is designed to support and promote self-propelled transport on campus and within the city of Statesboro.
