Rhodes is a small campus in a big city. Here’s some different ways to get around if you don’t have a car, or if you’re short on gas money.
The Zipcar is a program for students that don’t bring cars to school. Just sign up and reserve a car, get in, drive around town, then put it back where you found it.
Rhodes is small, so walking is the most common way to get around campus, but there are also restaurants, shops, and parks close enough to walk to.
Bikes are popular way to get around, especially for students living off campus. Memphis has more than 200 miles of bike infrastructure to keep you safe. The Memphis Greenline runs from Midtown to Germantown and the Vollintine & Evergreen Greenline runs from the corner of University and Jackson to the Crosstown Concourse. Rhodes even has a bike shop on campus where you can rent a bike and receive maintenance. Find it hidden in the back of Robinson!
