Transportation Services and Commuter Hacks

Trip planning and parking tech

UArrive is an app that helps you locate parking lots, garages, bike racks, transit stops, and more. RideAmigos maps out your entire commute, start to finish; it features alternative transportation options, including carpool matchups. Trip Tip: Commute and cash in. Every trip you plan through RideAmigos accumulates points and qualifies you for fun prizes.


Getting to, around, and from campus

Cat Tran, Night Cat, Disability Carts, Park ‘n Ride, and a whole host of bike-related services are available to help get you from one place to another. Without a doubt, Campus Bike Valet is one of our favorites. There is no need to bring a lock or find space at a rack; you just check in, drop off your bike, and go. Trip Tip: Register your bike on campus. It’s free and qualifies you for no-charge valet and repair services. Plus, it will help identify your bike if lost or stolen.


More ways to get your move on

Sun Tran busses and the Sun Link streetcar are excellent city services for commuting to campus or just bopping around Tucson. We also like Tugo bike share. With a pass, you can pick a bike up at one of 41 city-wide stations and drop it off any other. Trip Tip: Apply your Wildcat purchasing power. Arizona students qualify for a 50% discount on all three services.
