The Department of Transportation and Parking Services encourages and supports alternative modes of transportation. We offer a variety of programs to help reduce your carbon footprint, save you fuel and money, and reduce the hassle of finding parking.
Central Cycle includes all of the bicycle programs and services offered by Transportation and Parking Services. Services include bicycle rental, bicycle registration, and repair stations around campus.
UCO students are eligible to use the City of Edmond's free public transit system CityLink. This route covers areas surrounding the campus, and directly service many apartment complexes where students live in addition to a Downtown OKC route.
The City of Edmond has entered a limited partnership with Lime Scooters to allow the usage of e-scooters within city limits. These scooters are allowed on campus, within the guidelines put forth by the university.
With many students traveling to campus alone in vehicles, TPS incentivizes the use of carpools to reduce the number of vehicles parking on campus in an effort to alleviate congestion in the lots. Carpool permits allow students to share the cost of a permit to save money.
Park and Pace
As part of an overall healthy campus initiative, TPS has measured the walking time from lots on the outskirts of campus to many campus buildings. Walking distance across campus is less than 15 minutes in most cases.
