IU is dedicated to preserving green spaces, and as a result parking is limited on campus.
IU students manage very well without cars, and most students walk, bike, or ride the bus to campus. You'll find many safe and easy ways to get around.
- Campus Bus Service
- Multiple IU bus routes serving all ends of campus
- Bloomington Transit
- City bus routes for traveling to and from campus, and around Bloomington
- Parking Operations
- Campus parking permits and regulations
- Sustainable Transportation
- Greener ways to get around campus
