Campus Excessive Idling Policy

Aquinas College is an "idle-free" campus, meaning no vehicle is permitted to idle longer than 5 minutes while on college property. An unattended idling vehicle poses not only a safety threat but also a security risk. By limiting the amount of time vehicles are permitted to idle to 5 minutes, the policy helps to preserve the natural beauty of campus while simultaneously supporting AQ's commitment to carbon neutrality. Certain exceptions have been written into the policy to accommodate buses and diesel engines in extreme temperatures.       

The Rapid Public Bus System

Using public transportation is a great way to save gas money and green your transportation habits. AQ staff, faculty, and students can use the Rapid for only $0.25 per ride, a savings of over $1.50 per ride! Simply show the bus driver a valid Aquinas College ID to take advantage of this discount program. Ride the Rapid
