Clockwise from top left: Godwin Transit Center is the main bus terminal on campus; Buses are equipped with bike racks on front;JMU has partnered with Zipcar to bring self-service, on-demand car sharing to the campus community; Gates convert the campus to pedestrian, bike and bus-transit only during peak times.


An interactive walking guide (the DukeQuest Campus Walking Map - includes a selection of nearly 500 walking routes on the James Madison University campus. Walking routes can be chosen either by selecting a starting and ending point from a drop down list of select campus locations or simply by clicking locations on the map itself. The estimated travel time, a recommended route, and an elevation profile will be displayed, along with the number of calories that are used to walk the route. This project was funded by James Madison University’s Office of Public Safety and illustrates the dynamic cross-disciplinary connections in the College of Integrated Science and Engineering (formerly the College of Integrated Science and Technology).  

Further information about walking on campus can be found here.

The JMU transportation website provides extensive tools and resources to support walking, bicycling, and transit use.  For example, bicycle resources include information on UREC's short-term bicycle rental program as well as a map of bicycle racks and tire pump stations. The map was created with the assistance of students.
