Sustainable Transportation

In addition to promoting a walkable campus, we seek to minimize the use of vehicles through bike, bus, and ride-share programs. 

In an effort to cultivate a bike-friendly campus, there are nearly 100 bike racks spread out around campus for convenience, and students can register their bikes for free with the Butler University Police Department for added security. Our campus is linked to Indianapolis’ two most frequented bicycle and pedestrian trails through the Central Canal Towpath: the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and the Monon Trail. 

Butler’s partnership with Uber, an on-demand private driving app, offers a safe, alternative transportation option to and from campus. Student Government Association (SGA) provides full transportation coverage from campus to local hospitals, urgent care centers, and the Indianapolis Airport and discounted rates to IUPUI, Glendale Target, and Saraga International Grocery.  

For public transportation, two IndyGo bus routes (18 & 28) were also modified to serve the Butler Campus directly with convenient stops along Sunset Avenue. IndyGo S-passes (1 month) are available in the Student Involvement and Leadership Office for $30.
