Bike or car rental

On this page: Zipcar car rental

If you don't have a bike or car, you can easily rent one to get around the UNT campus and the surrounding community. We partner with the following services to offer our UNT community options for transit.

Current transit options for students include including daily bus service maintained by DCTA, Zipcar rental cars, e-Ride evening service and early morning Lyft service for free rides on campus – information for both can be found here.

We are researching bike transit alternatives and will update this page as soon as we have more information to share.
