Elon University continues to work with local authorities to advocate for increased access to, and safety for, bicycle and pedestrian routes that serve the campus and surrounding area as well as public transportation services. Representatives from the university have been involved in related planning efforts with nearby municipalities. Representatives of Elon University's Senior Staff advocated for a new greenway connecting Elon University to downtown Burlington.

Elon University's BioBus system has two stops within close proximity to stops for the local public bus system, which provides some connectivity between the two systems.
