Students, faculty and staff at DU are encouraged to drive less and take alternative forms of transportation whenever possible. Transportation Solutions, a local nonprofit transportation management association, runs the Transportation Center on campus to bring you biking, walking, transit, carpool, and car share resources. When fewer people drive to DU alone, we reduce our carbon footprint and make the air cleaner for everyone.
Drive Less DU: A program to help you track your alternative transportation trips
Drive Less DU encourages students, faculty and staff to use alternative transportation to commute to DU at least one day a week. This includes using carpools, vanpools, taking transit, biking, or walking.
All it takes to do your part is a pledge to use alternative transportation one day a week. Throughout the month, you report your commute modes and you're automatically entered into drawings for prizes. Reporting your commute totals not only will provide you with real-time information about your environmental impacts, miles not driven and cost-savings, it also helps the Transportation Center and DU track effectiveness of commuter programs, as well as the contributions of Drive Less DU members toward campus sustainability efforts.
