Dear Colleagues and Students,

For the sake of establishing a healthy green campus and environmental protection, green commuting is highly encouraged on campus. Besides walking, biking is a good alternative for traveling around campus for living, teaching and other activities. You are all invited to make good use of the bicycle rental service that the University provides. For the details, please refer to our internal bulletin <UM Bicycle Rental Service Arrangement for the First Semester of Academic Year 2017/2018 and Safety Tips for Bicycle Riding and Parking on Campus>.

At the same time, the University also provides campus loop shuttle service to assist the University Community members in need. Starting from 1 September 2017 (Friday), the campus loop shuttle bus service will be provided by public mini bus that accommodates standees. The carrying capacity will be increased from 24 passengers to 35 passengers (including standees), more passengers can be picked up per trip. Thus, the bus frequency can be adjusted to reduce emission of carbon dioxide and air pollution that the shuttle bus might create to the environment. Please refer to the table below for the adjusted schedules:
