Transportation Alternatives

ODU provides students, faculty and staff a variety of safe and convenient options to get around the Hampton Roads area without ever needing your own car. ODU has partnered with Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) to offer members of the campus community more transportation options. Student, faculty and staff who have a valid ODU identification will be able to ride all HRT transportation services for a great discount! This partnership is part of the university's committed "go green" effort.

If you need to go somewhere not accessible from a HRT route ODU has also partnered with Zipcar to provide students with an affordable option to give you the freedom you need.
