Getting Around by Car

Students have used Zip Cars in past years http://www.dps.unc.edu/Transit/campustransit/zipcar/zipcar.pdf .One student in 2011 bought a used car for $600 and after the program drove it home. Please be aware that parking on the UNC campus is very limited and most often not available. The Dogwood parking deck across from the hospitals will cost you $8 per day if you need to drive into and park on campus. if you live outside of Chapel Hill you can apply for a free Park-n-Ride permit. http://www.dps.unc.edu/maps/parkandride/ParkAndRide.pdf

Getting Around by Bicycle

Students have been known to simply bring their bikes from home, but you can also buy a bike here. Most of the transit buses in the Triangle are equipped with bike racks on the front of the bus. Bikes are sold on Craig's List and used bikes are also for sale in a few shops in town. http://raleigh.craigslist.org/bik/
