Ask CESL Question: If I don’t have a car or bike, how can I get around campus and surrounding areas?!

Answer:

One exceptional option to get around campus is the University of Arizona “Cat Tran”. It is a safe and easy way to get from one end of campus to the other, or just explore new areas! Who can use it? All stops on campus are free to visitors, students, faculty, and staff. There are 5 major routes (organized by color) and 1 NightTran that run until 12:40 am. *to use the cat tran off campus there is a fee based on what route you will be using, contact the parking and transportation services to purchase off campus passes. For CatTran Maps and Schedules visit the following link: http://parking.arizona.edu/pdf/maps/shuttle_guide.pdf

Also! For easy cheap and broader off campus travel there is the Tucson city bus option of the Sun Tran. If you would like a schedule and a brochure with information we have them available in the Student Learning Center Room 209.
