This synthesis will be of interest to transit agency professionals, campus communities, and the consultants who work with them in dealing with the provision of campus transit service. The report offers survey information from 30 campus transit agencies including insights into the lessons learned and issues related to planning, implementing, and operating campus transit service. The focus is on the recent trend toward unlimited access funding systems for campus transit service, whereby students, faculty, staff, and in some cases, nonuniversity-affiliated residents of a campus community are afforded unlimited use of transit service without paying a fare. This document integrates information from a literature review, survey responses from 30 transit agencies, and three case studies with experiences thought to be transferable.
