Alternative Transportation and Parking Services

Alternative, Green, and Sustainable are all popular words used to describe transportation that makes a positive contribution to the environment both socially and economically. UAMS Parking Operations is committed in offering various alternative transportation options specific to the UAMS environment.  We’re working towards a mix that offers opportunities to save on fuel expense and parking fees while ultimately creating a more sustainable campus. 

Transportation has become a significant issue on the UAMS Campus as well as other campuses around the country. UAMS Parking Operations would like to challenge UAMS employees to consider other less traditional options.  Currently incentives are being offered to UAMS Easy Rider Registered Carpools.

Parking Operations will continue to research other forms of Alternative Transportation and updates will be posted to the website.
