CarShare at Webster University

Students without a car on campus have a new way to get around town. Webster University partners with Enterprise CarShare to bring car sharing to campus.

The shared car - a Toyota Prius Hybrid - arrived on campus at the start of the Fall 2014 semester and is parked outside of the Webster Village Apartments. After signing up for the service, students are able to reserve the car online then pay an hourly fee. Fuel, maintenance and damage/liability insurance are included in the fees.

The UPass program allows members of the Webster University community to ride both Metrobus and Metrolink for free. It’s part of the University’s commitment to making transportation more accessible, affordable and sustainable. 

Obtaining a Pass: To obtain a pass for the current year, visit the Bursar’s office with your Webster ID, making sure to have the proper sticker for the current semester on the back.

To use it while riding on the Metro bus and light rail system, simply carry both your UPass and Webster ID as verification. For bus and train schedules, route planning and other information navigating the Metro system, visit metrostlouis.org.

Bike Racks on Campus

Bike Rack

There over 20 bike racks all around the campus making it convenient for the students to park their bikes. 

You can find the bike rack spots on our green resources map on the website.

 

Bike Resource Station

sustain-bike-station7919.jpgIn 2016, Webster University added a new feature that makes it easier for students and employees who bike on or to campus. The station includes hanger arms to secure a bike while Webster bikers use the tools to perform basic repairs and maintenance. 

The idea for the station was proposed by student Juan Felipe Salas as part of a $1,000 Sustainability Coalition grant.
