transportation solutions

R.I.D.E.S is a program designed to offer students a responsible mode of transportation when one is needed. R.I.D.E.S. allows students to obtain their very own Metro Card assigned to their individual student ID number. Students can register for their card at the Drug and Alcohol Resource Center. Once registered, students may call any Metro Taxi in Connecticut at any time, and swipe their Metro Card to pay for the charge.

In addition to on-campus shuttle services, Southern offers a free daily shuttle to and from Union Station in New Haven and weekend shuttle service to Hamden Plaza, Westfield Shopping Mall in Milford, and downtown New Haven.

The U-Pass is a special transportation pass for full-time undergraduate Southern students and is valid for unlimited trips during the fall and spring semesters. Students can ride CTTRANSIT buses, Shoreline East and Metro North trains in CT, the CT Fastrak buses, and many smaller transit lines all over the state with no out-of-pocket expense.

Zipcar is wheels when you want them, literally. Southern has partnered with Zipcar to bring two cars to campus. Cars are available on-demand 24/7, to be reserved online by the hour or day. A great alternative to car rental or ownership!
