Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon is considered a large-scale university since it comprises over two hundred thousand students and employees, the third highest enrollment in the country. This has led its campuses to become benchmarks across the Monterrey metropolitan area.

As a result, UANL implemented a connectivity strategy through public transportation that allows interconnectivity between the campuses in the metropolitan area and the different parts of the city. Making transportation easier for students, professors, and staff helps reduce car use. For instance, Line 2 of the Metrorrey Public Transportation System, a sustainably efficient, reliable, and economical service, connects the Ciudad Universitaria, Health Sciences, and Agricultural Sciences campuses.

The Health Sciences and Agricultural Sciences campus have access to the TigreBus university transportation system. Since the metro is not immediately close to the facilities, the TigreBus connects the campuses with the nearest metro station, enabling a safe and free transfer for students.

Metrorrey Public Transportation System operates entirely with bioenergy provided by Bioenergia de Nuevo Leon, S.A. de C.V. (BENLESA), which produces this resource using biogas (methane) from sanitary landfills, supporting the mitigation of greenhouse gases and transporting over five hundred thousand passengers at low cost.

Furthermore, the campuses in the metropolitan area are connected with different parts of the city through numerous public transportation routes that offer special fares to UANL students using their university ID, which is controlled through the Tarjeta Feria program by Enlaces Inteligentes and the State Transportation Agency.

To make it easier for students to check or refill their ID balance, six modules of the Tarjeta Feria service have operated in four UANL campuses since 2012: Ciudad Universitaria, Agricultural Sciences, Health Sciences, and Mederos.

The list below shows the extensive coverage of public transportation routes that allows an efficient connection between campuses, the Metrorrey Public Transportation System, and different parts of the city.
