Getting Around Oxford and Ole Miss
With a newly expanded bus system, bike lanes, sidewalks, and a new bike-share program, you no longer need a car to get around Oxford easily and conveniently. In fact, the many options now available make other forms of transportation often more convenient than driving.

Oxford University Transit System
The City of Oxford and the University of Mississippi worked together to create the Oxford University Transit (OUT) system, which now covers most of Oxford. The OUT bus provides a public transportation system that currently covers the Oxford area with five bus routes.
The Blue, Purple, Red, Yellow, and Green routes come on campus to drop off and pick up passengers near the Student Union and many other locations. In addition to the five routes, Gold and Brown routes carry commuters from parking lots to center of the campus. There is also a route that runs from the Lyceum to the Square. For a complete route map, route schedule, and the latest information, visit: http://www.oxfordms.net/visitors/transit/bus-routes-a-schedules.html.
Rebel Pedals Bike-Sharing Program
Rebel Pedals is the bicycle sharing program of the University of Mississippi. Rebel Pedals was established to make the quality of student life better by giving students affordable, environmentally sustainable, and increased access to bicycles, a healthy alternative to driving a car. Our mission is to promote bicycling as a desirable means of transportation in a greater effort to strengthen a culture of sustainability on campus.
By providing an accessible, cost-effective bike loan program to the University of Mississippi community, Rebel Pedals provides a convenient way to get to class, encourages off-campus exploration, and promotes a healthy body and environment. Rebel Pedals is sponsored by the Associated Student Body, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Campus Sustainability.

Biking in Oxford - Oxford Pathways Commission
The city of Oxford has made a dedicated effort to become a safe place to bike and walk. The Oxford Pathways Commission was formed to plan, create, and enhance bike and pedestrian routes. Their hard work was recently recognized when the League of American Bicyclists designated Oxford a Bicycle Friendly Community at the bronze level.
