Transportation

"The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet." - Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Self-Reliance," 1841

Bus Stop Shelters

In Fall 2010, BSU installed two new bus shelters on campus in two different locations. The first is right on the main street, Birchmont Drive which goes right through campus, by the library. This shelter has a solar panel attached to it for lighting at night. The second shelter is located by the dining center, Walnut Hall and it's located under a street lamp to give light to the shelter is needed. BSU is working to promote using Paul Bunyan Transit, the public transportation system, to the student population.

 

 

Bucky's Bikes

Bucky's Bikes is a program started by the Outdoor Program Center and the Sustainability Office. Students can rent a bike for the semester. Bikes are high quality, used, hybrid bikes.

Commuter Survey

In the fall of 2011, a commuter survey was created to see how people were getting to and from campus and then determining why they chose those modes of transportation.  Also, we asked if people would be interested in different services like a carpooling system or a car rental program.  The survey was given to all students, faculty, and staff.  To see the results, click here for a report. 

"I went into the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have no lived."
~ Henry David Thoreau (American essayist, poet and philosopher, 1817–1862)
