Parking and Transportation
Though the university does not offer indoor bicycle storage at the facilities, the Miller Center, Byrum Welcome Center and Reynolds Gym have locker and shower facilities for alternative transportation commuters.
Bicycle racks are located at every residence hall and at all primary classroom and administrative buildings.
In 2015, the university completed a bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure study. The infrastructure study provides a full set of recommendations to support connectivity pedestrians for cyclists on campus.
The university announced a new bicycle-sharing program in the spring semester of 2015. The full program is operable for fall 2015 enrollment.
The university offers shuttle programs that are free to students, faculty and staff. These programs include:
1. Two individual routes that transport students who live in apartment complexes within a 5-mile radius of campus to/from campus.
2. A shuttle transports students around campus and to/from off-campus/satellite lots and surrounding WFU buildings.
3. A special shuttle transports students on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings to downtown venues.
4. A shuttle that transports students to a shopping mall and restaurant on the weekends.
Wake Forest does not offer free or reduced-price city transit passes. The Winston-Salem transit system offers relatively limited options for Wake Forest commuters.
If an employee has been issued a carpool hangtag, in the case of a personal or family emergency, the Parking and Transportation office will reimburse a carpool member for cab fare upon submission of a valid receipt.
Wake Forest also has a carpool program for WFU employees. Two or more employees can sign up and reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles commuting to campus. Employees that participate in the carpool program park free on-campus and recieve their own reserved carpool parking space of their choice.
The university uses a carpool matching program called Zimride, which helps potential users find carpool partners through their ride matching software.
Wake Forest launched a car sharing program through Zipcar in January 2010, starting with two vehicles. In August 2014, a fifth vehicle was added due to increased membership and sustained usage.
The university is installing two electric vehicle charging systems during the summer of 2015, which can be used by faculty, staff, students and visitors.
The university does not have a telecommuting policy.
Telecommuting requests are reviewed on an individual basis and may be granted to staff upon the approval of the department head. Factors that are considered are availability of adequate supervision, accessibility to business contacts and the constituents being served.
WFU department heads may approve a staff member's request to work a variable work schedule depending on program and operational needs. Factors that are considered are availability of adequate supervision, accessibility to business contacts and the constituents being served.
Faculty and staff who do not register a vehicle, but walk or ride a bicycle to work on a frequent basis may register as a pedestrian or bicycle commuter. These employees will be issued eight (8) free day passes per semester that will allow them to drive a vehicle to work and park on-campus, when needed. These employees do not pay for parking.
The university offers financing for faculty and staff who choose to buy homes in the university's "faculty drive" area adjacent to the campus core.
