Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
As of Spring 2016, has 3 EV charging stations on campus (see this map for locations), which were installed as part of a grant from Entergy in 2011. LSU Campus Sustainability aims to promote greenhouse gas reductions in daily campus activities, energy efficiency and work towards a more sustainable campus. The charging stations help us encourage alternative transportation by providing a convenient way for electric vehicle drivers to charge their cars.
Instructions for Use

Tiger Trails Campus Transit
With increased seating capacity and improved routes, the Tiger Trails transit system helps decrease vehicle congestion on and around campus. The LSU Tiger Trails Transit System promotes environmental sustainability by using ultra low sulfur diesel, which allows for advanced emission controls. In June 2016, LSU will have 31 new buses, 25 of which will feature an exhaust reduction system, including diesel particulate filters and selective catalytic reducers. These new buses will help LSU's fleet lower greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation on campus. The Tiger Trails bus station has committed to advanced recycling efforts and green cleaning products, as well as proper use, storage and disposal of all waste associated with maintenance activities. Also when passengers choose Tiger Trails instead of driving, they are reducing the number of vehicles on the road, thereby reducing traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
