Parking and Transportation

Parking is limited within the Town of Boone.  Most lots in downtown Boone are privately owned and are designated for a particular business or reserved for individuals who have rented a space in that lot.  Towing and/ or booting is widely utilized for unauthorized vehicles parked in private lots.  The cost of non-consensual towing or having a boot removed ranges from $60 to $100.

Many students rely on the Appalcart, Boone’s free public transportation system, to get to and from campus every day.  The Appalcart has twelve routes with multiple stops (many located near off-campus student housing areas) to serve students and other residents of Boone.
