Sustainable Transportation

At Delta, students, staff and faculty come from Bay, Midland, Saginaw counties and beyond to our main campus and downtown centers every day. Whether you are traveling a distance to campus or live around the corner, we have several convenient and sustainable transportation options.


Bus service

There are many benefits to public transportation - reduced traffic congestion in cities, less air pollution and healthier lifestyles, to name a few. Public transit produces significantly less air pollution per passenger mile than a standard car carrying a single driver, and buses emit 20 percent less carbon monoxide. Public transportation is just one way you can reduce your carbon footprint!

Bus passes for both STARS and Bay Metro Transit are available for purchase in the Bookstore.

Saginaw Transit Authority and Regional Services (STARS)

STARS provides basic transportation needs for the urbanized Saginaw area. Route 9 travels to the main campus by the Bay Metro Transit connection at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU). STARS Rosa Parks Transfer Plaza is located within walking distance to our Downtown Saginaw Center.

Bay Metro Transit Authority

Bay Metropolitan Transportation Authority's mission is to provide high-quality public transportation service to the residents of Bay County. Route 4 travels to the main campus and is the connection for Saginaw residents at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU). (Add route that will get to Planetarium)


Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations

Delta College supports the use of electric vehicles (EV) as a means for commuting that reduces and/or eliminates pollution and lessens the college carbon footprint. Two EV charging stations have been installed in the west campus parking lot near F Wing to serve drivers within our campus community, including students, faculty, staff, fitness center members and board members. Level 2 charging stations can accommodate up to four vehicles and are free to use.  Simply park in one of the charging spaces and plug in!

A vehicle must be actively charging to occupy a station parking space. Vehicles parked in charging station spaces that are not charging will be ticketed according to Public Safety Parking and Traffic Regulations, Parking Regulations Section 5, 5.02.

Non-charging EV parking spaces are accessible at all three downtown centers. Center staff can assist with how to gain access to these spaces. 

Questions or concerns regarding the use of EV charging stations should be directed to facilities@delta.edu or 989-686-9240.
