Commuting Options

No vehicle? No problem! There are many benefits to leave your vehicle behind when you come to FSU. We have tons of convenient transportation services available, whenever you need them.

Important Rideshare Safety Tips to Keep in Mind

  • Share your trip with others. If you need to travel alone, consider taking the carpool option. It allows you to ride with others who have a similar destination.
  • Request your ride before you go outside.
  • Verify the identity of the driver and car before entering the vehicle. The ridesharing app will show you the driver’s photo, the vehicle’s license plate number, and the make and model of the car.
  • Check the driver’s ratings and read the feedback before you confirm a pick-up. Cancel the request if you are not comfortable with the driver.
  • Keep your personal information confidential.
  • NEVER give your name to the driver. Before entering the vehicle you ALWAYS want to ask the driver “What is my name?” If he or she does not state your name exactly DO NOT get into the vehicle, immediately seek safety inside and call 911.
  • If something doesn’t feel right, don’t get into the vehicle.
  • Sit in the back seat and wear your seatbelt.
  • Know your surroundings. Use the app to follow your driver’s progress before they pick you up and while you are en route to your destination.
  • If your personal safety is threatened, call emergency personnel immediately.
