Chiang Mai University’s free transportation
The main aims of the service are to provide free transportation to CMU students and staff, to minimize the use of personal cars and motorcycles, to solve the problems of traffic congestion and a lack of parking space, and to raise the environmental awareness.
Guided by the value of good management and the strategy of CMU: A Green, Clean, and Sustainable University, Chiang Mai University values the importance of the preservation of the environment and natural resources. Chiang Mai University is committed to providing a free shuttle bus service for staff and students to travel within the main campus (known as Suan Sak Campus), and tetween the main campus and the other two campuses, using 60 battery-powered cars, 2 buses, and vans. This is part of an environmental awareness campaign to encourage students and staff to decrease reliance on personal vehicles.
There are altogether sixty 12-seat battery-powered cars: six lines for the Suan Sak campus and one line for the Suan Dawk campus. The battery-powered purple car service within the main campus operates seven days a week, 7 AM – 10 PM.
