Travel & Transport

We assess offices on their sustainable travel and transportation practices, such as the modes of transport office members take to get to work, the office’s use of video and teleconferencing in lieu of travel, and the office members’ use of alternative methods of transportation when traveling between meetings throughout campus (biking, bus, carpools, etc). Take advantage of these services and help save the environment!
