ISGI offers a car-sharing program as part of its commitment to creating a more sustainable campus for students, faculty and staff.
Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, is open to those over 18 years of age and who have been licensed for at least one year (domestic and international). Students, faculty or staff may join the membership program for $25, then pay $7.50 per hour or $69 a day to reserve one of four vehicles parked on campus. The cost includes gas, insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, wireless technology, and other features.
Visit www.zipcar.com/uta for more information.
UT Arlington Parking and Transportation Services operates a free campus shuttle bus system for all UT Arlington students, faculty, staff, and guests. Special express routes connect Maverick Stadium and the Central Library. The last shuttles of the day leave from the stadium at 5:30 p.m. and the Business building at 6 p.m. Buses run on a limited schedule when classes are not in session.
Routes and hours of operation may be altered to meet changing University needs. For up-to-date information on routes and the shuttle schedule, check the shuttle map.
Every day the commuting choices you make have an impact on our air. It is our responsibility to ensure the air is safe for all. That’s why UT Arlington is encouraging the community to share a ride to campus. And now, it’s easier than ever. Register on tryparkingit.com to find carpool or vanpool matches near you.
On the site you can also log your shared commutes and receive an estimate of the miles you’ve saved and harmful emissions you’ve helped reduce. ISGI will track the new registration, number of registrants logging rideshare, number of vehicle trips reduced, number of vehicle miles travel reduced, and an emissions breakdown by vehicle type. Those numbers will be used to calculate the amount of air quality emission reduced and the number of miles saved by faculty and staff.
The City of Arlington, in partnership with Via, is among the first cities in the nation to offer on-demand ride sharing as a public transportation solution. Riders can book a seat in a six-passenger Mercedes-Benz van through the Via app, and Via’s sophisticated technology will match them with others going their way. Rides are just $3 per trip. The Via rideshare service is available in Arlington Monday through Saturday, with service hours from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. Accessible vehicles are available for customers who use wheelchairs.
The Via service area will encompass Downtown and the City’s vibrant Cultural Arts District, the University of Texas at Arlington, the Entertainment District, and the area around Arlington Memorial Hospital. Riders can also connect to the TRE Centreport/DFW Airport Station, where they can then catch a commuter train to Dallas or Fort Worth.
Up-to-date service area maps and operating hours will always be available through the free Via app or the Via website at www.ridewithvia.com/arlington.
UTA’s new real-time tracking app for shuttle buses is TapRide by DoubleMap. The new app will provide more accurate arrival times. Download for free fromGooglePlay or iTunes. The Transloc tracking app will be active until Wednesday, Jan. 31.
You also can use the TapRide by DoubleMap app to request courtesy escort rides, similar to Uber. This on-demand, point-to-point service operates on campus 7 p.m.-3 a.m. seven days a week. The service is available to all UTA students, staff, and faculty with an active NetID.
