Welcome to the University of Arkansas! To ensure you are ready to get the most out of your years on The Hill, please familiarize yourself with the services the Transit and Parking department offers and what you need to know for getting around campus!

Transit Services

Razorback Transit

Razorback Transit is a fare-free bus service that runs on campus and throughout Fayetteville, making it easy for you to get to or around campus. Download the Passio GO! App for real time bus locations or visit our transit website for bus route stops and schedules.


SafeRide provides students with a safe means of transportation from any uncomfortable or inconvenient situation. During operating hours, Safe Ride can pick you up at any location within the Fayetteville city limits and transport you to your residence as indicated on UAConnect.


Razorback transit provides paratransit, which is a separate fleet of vehicles with the sole purpose of transporting passengers with disabilities around Fayetteville. Paratransit is meant to serve individuals who are physically unable to use the fixed-route bus service. Those who wish to use paratransit must go through an application process to be granted access to paratransit vans.


Biking on campus is free and does not require a permit. There are bike racks spread across campus to secure your bike. Learn more about the benefits of biking on campus

Parking Permits

The university uses a virtual permit system that is connected to your license plate number.

You can purchase a parking permit, view and pay citactions, or change vehicle information on the MyParking Account site.

See Student Permit Types for the different parking permit options offered to students.

Parking Rules and Regulations

To avoid receiving a citation, familiarize yourself with our campus parking lots and the permits associated with them. If you get a citation, pay or appeal it promptly to avoid late fees from accumulating. 

To assist students in paying citations, the Parking department offers a “Work It Off” program. Any student can complete three hours of community service to “work off” one citation per academic year (up to $75 in fees).

Many parking areas will need to be vacated before major University of Arkansas sporting events. You can add these events to your UARK Outlook calendar associated with your student email. Find step-by-step instructions on how to do so and more information about athletic event parking.
