There are more ways to get around campus than driving a car or walking. You can rent a WolfWheels bike or ride the Wolfline! This fall, there are some changes and additions to the Wolfline routes (including a new route that stops at my favorite building on campus, the Park Alumni Center). Full service Wolfline begins on August 16th. Need a quick way to get to Centennial Campus or Connect to Main campus? Do you live at Campus Edge, Walnut Creek or Woodland Court? Then the new Rt. 10 Southside Circulator is for you!

New Wolfline Routes:

Rt. 10 Southside Circulator – Wolfline’s new bus route which circulates through Centennial Campus and provide a direct Centennial Campus connection from surrounding neighborhoods.

Rt. 10 operates during peak service hours from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m. (every 16 minutes) and 3 – 6 p.m. (every 16 minutes) with stops at Research I, College of Textiles, intersection of Achievement Drive/Main Campus Drive, Lonnie Poole Golf Course, The William & Ida Friday Institute for Educational Innovation and Centennial Middle School. It circulates through Centennial Campus and provides a direct Centennial Campus connection from surrounding neighborhoods; i.e., Thistledown Drive, a portion of Gorman Street (between Thistledown Drive and Avent Ferry Road) and Avent Ferry Road (between Gorman Street and Varsity Drive). Transfers can be made to other Wolfline and CAT routes.

Also, have you heard about the student carpool option ? It might be the solution for you and a friend or roommate! It allows parking in multiple locations on campus.
