Bicycle Instead of Driving

Besides cutting down on car transmissions bicycling is a great way to stay in shape! Lamar provides many amenities to support the bicycling community, including bike racks in various areas around campus, being able to register your bike with lamar police, and now includes a free bike repair station in front of Gentry Hall.

Ride Sharing/Car Pooling

If you are interested in ride sharing every day, once a week, or would simply like to create an account in case you might one day need it, please register at www.carpoolsetx.org. They offer carpool matching, a guaranteed ride home, and prize drawings.  By carpooling, you not only help the environment, you can save money, time, and stress.
