Car Alternatives

You can prevent the release of 19 pounds of carbon dioxide for every gallon of gasoline you save by walking, biking, or riding the Bard shuttle.

Alternative Transportation

  • Public Transportation—The Dutchess County Loop bus fills some of the gaps in the campus shuttle schedule. View the schedule and click on Route C.
  • Ride Share—Share a ride when you can. NYS Dept. of Transportation (NYSDOT) has commuter information online and via phone at NY511. You can also visit Bard's internal SPARC ride board
  • Car Share—With Zipcar on campus, it just got easier to live without a car. Need a car? Borrow a Zipcar! Zipcar brings self-service, on-demand car sharing to the area. To use Zipcars, simply register as a member, reserve a car online or by phone, use your Zipcard to enter the car, and drive away. Return the car to the same location where you picked it up. The relationship is between you and Zipcar. Bard provides the parking space.
