Recipient:

National Center for Smart Growth, Department of Transportation Services, and Office of Sustainability

Amount:

$19,000

A professor in the National Center for Smart Growth will collaborate with DOTS and the Office of Sustainability on the proposed study to determine effective ways of increasing the number of student, faculty, and staff commuters who choose transit as their primary means of commuting to and from the UMD campus. The results of the study will help the campus respond to its forthcoming parking shortage and further reduce carbon emissions associated with commuting.
