We provide innovative and sustainable transportation solutions that facilitate the education, research, cultural, and service missions of the University.
In addition to providing excellent service for our campus community, Transportation Services strives for more sustainable commuting options in an effort to reduce our collective impact on the environment. Our team is here to offer education and support to help you lower your carbon footprint as we all move toward a more sustainable future.
Commute Reduction aims to encourage students, faculty and staff to avoid the use of Single Occupancy Vehicle trips to and from campus as much as possible. This type of commuting is least efficient when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint and can also be the least cost effective for the commuter--you!
Instead, consider switching to or mixing in alternate commuting options that will benefit both you and the environment.
