Sustainable Campus Operations: Transportation

Sustainable transport refers to any means of transport with low impact on the environment, and includes walking, cycling, green vehicles, car share programs, and public transport systems.

Sustainable transport systems make a positive contribution to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the communities they serve. Transport systems exist to provide social and economic connections. The advantages of increased mobility need to be weighed against the environmental, social and economic costs that transport systems pose. Learn more on Wikipedia >

"Green" Your Transportation

  • Consider making your next car a hybrid.
  • Walk or bike to work! These are the two greenest options one can choose to get around - no fossil fuels, no emissions.
  • Consider car pooling.
  • Don't drive mindlessly, combine shopping trips so you only go out once and try to walk or bike whenever possible.
