Ride Amigos

Ride Amigos is a ride share program that allows students of the University of Alabama to connect and utilize carpool opportunities among their fellow classmates.  Once you place your origin and destination in the system you can find other people to carpool with, search for driving, biking or walking distance to your destination or see if you can catch a bus on your route.  If you review the Ride Amigos tab on our webpage you can also review training videos that help you get started.

Bicycle Release Policy

As of January 2015, anyone who has a bicycle that is impounded will be charged a $5 fee upon retrieval of the vehicle.

Positive Parking Incentive

The Judicial Branch of the Student Government Association has partnered with UA Transportation Services to create a Positive Parking Incentive. The purpose of this incentive is to encourage students to park appropriately on campus. To be eligible, students must have an active parking permit and not have received any parking citations including warnings for the current semester. Eligible students will be placed in a random drawing to receive $100.00 scholarships. There will be a total of five drawings with five different recipients, totaling $500.00. The drawings will take place at the conclusion the Fall and Spring semester and will be awarded the following month. The award will be credited to each student’s account.
