Transportation

Transportation is a significant component of RIT’s carbon footprint—and can have a big impact on your wallet and your waistline.

Think about using multi-modal transportation systems, where a combination of riding a shuttle, bicycling, and perhaps walking will get you to destinations throughout the region.

Whatever mode of transportation you choose, remember to share the road and the sidewalks!

Bicycling is a great way to work up a sweat. But you might not want to go to work or class that way. These buildings have shower and locker facilities available:

  • George H. Clark Gymnasium (basement)
  • Global Village Better Me Wellness Center (next to Shear Global)
  • Louise Slaughter Hall (restrooms closest to the Printing Lab)
  • Lyndon Baines Johnson Hall (1st floor, women-1787 and men-1771)
  • University Services Center (1st floor by the elevator - shower facilities only)
  • Student Life Center (locker rooms are downstairs)
  • Golisano Institute for Sustainability (1st floor handicap accessible bathroom)
