13.) Green Tip: Got Snow?!
When things turn white, you can avoid the danger of slippery roads and the hassle of scraping the windshield by leaving your car at home and leaving the driving to TARC. The entire bus system is completely free with UofL ID. If you need a car later in the day, check one out from UofL’s new WeCar car-share program. And when clearing snow, use a shovel instead of gas-guzzling blowers or salt — you’ll get some exercise while preventing corrosion and damage to plants and aquatic ecosystems.
Additional Information: Plan your bus trip here. UofL’s WeCar car-sharing.
