Penn’s Sustainable Transportation Initiative was launched in 2010 in support of the University’s Climate Action Plan’s goal of lowering the University’s carbon footprint. The focus of the Initiative is developing and expanding sustainable commuting options for members of the Penn community.
The 2009 Climate Action Plan set a goal that over half of the University population will use alternative transit by FY14. In 2007, 40% of the Penn community used alternative transit to commute to campus. Today over 50% use alternative transit.
