A brief description of the program:

A number of transportation services are available to faculty, staff and students to get around campus and the Bowling Green community. These include:

Topper Transit - WKU's very own transit service provides service between main campus and South Campus, around campus, and to evening shopping destinations.
GObg - Bowling Green's public transit system stops on campus, too! Bus passes are available for purchase at Parking and Transportation Services. Parking and Transportation Services buys these passes for $40, and offers them to students for only $10 a semester.
Safe Ride - Intended to start in the Fall of 2012, and will act as a late night, on call service to reduce drinking and driving.
