Miami University provides transit service on its Oxford campus through a contract with a private transportation contractor (First Transit). The service, called “Miami Metro,” offers daily service throughout the campus, off-campus high-density residential areas, and retail shopping areas. The service is for the exclusive use of Miami University students, faculty and staff at no cost per ride. The program is funded by a student fee of $66 per semester for full-time students. During academic year 2011-12, the Miami Metro system provided transportation for 907,605 passengers, an increase of 8.8% over the previous academic year. Miami University offers transit between its Oxford, Hamilton and Middletown campuses through an agreement with the Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA). BCRTA provides a public transit system with connectors between the three cities, and under the agreement students, faculty and staff may ride all BCRTA regional routes at no cost by showing their Miami University ID card.
