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 Nice Ride (formerly Bucky's Bikes)

Students are able to rent a bike for the semester for on $40!  The bike has a basket and lights and comes with a u-lock and key.  If interested, contact Mark Morrissey at the Outdoor Program Center.

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.

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy -sun, wind and tide. ... I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
~ Thomas Edison to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone (1931)
