Alternative Transportation Options

Want to get to campus, but don't have a car or would like to find a more sustainable option? You've come to the right place. Here you will find information on bus passes and campus bicycling options.

BY BUS: Get your FREE Bus Pass at the Student Activities office. You must have a CNM ID to get your pass. CNM employees are eligible, too. FOr more information, visit CNM's Parking Services website on Alternate Transportation
BY BIKE: CNM participates in the city-wide PACE Bike Share program. You may see the stations around campus. You may ride these bicycles for as low as $4.99/month and you don't need to lock these bikes to designated (branded) stations to end your ride! You may lock them to any bicycle rack in the city. Currently, you may find these bikes on main campus at Smith Brasher Hall, the Student Services Center (SSC), across from the Physical Plant Department (PPD) parking lot, and off of Coal Avenue, next to the Science Lab Building (L).  For more information about this program, please go here.
Of course, you may ride you own bike to campus. Please be safe and wear a helmet!
