Transportation Initiatives

Electric Vehicle Rentals

Transportation Services is a key partner in helping the University reach its carbon neutrality goal, and has added electric vehicles to its vehicle rental fleet. Notre Dame employees now have the opportunity to choose an EV when traveling for University business.

Electric Vehicle Charging

Notre Dame Offers campus commuters EV charging stations in certain parking lots. Access can vary depending on time and day. See our EV charging page for more details.  

Take the Bus - It’s Free With ID  

If you have a Notre Dame ID, any TRANSPO bus is free, anytime.  So try taking the bus to work, and on your next weekend outing too! Route 7 takes you to Notre Dame. See TRANSPO for all other routes.

Bike to School - and to Work

Biking is great for the environment, your wallet, and your health. There are bike loops in dozens of locations around campus - check them out in the Guide to Michiana Bike Routes

Regional Transportation Planning

The Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) is collaborating with South Bend Public Transportation (TRANSPO) to develop the CONNECT Transit Plan. CONNECT will address the area's long-range transportation plan, which includes bussing, walking, biking, and more. 

Airport & Regional Travel To and From Campus

South Bend has multiple transportation options to get you to and from the region's airports and to the city of Chicago. Check out Notre Dame's transportation services page for more information.
