University at Albany

Alternative Transportation

Each day thousands of faculty, staff, and students commute to UAlbany's Uptown, Downtown, and Health Science campuses. Improving transportation efficiency is consistent with UAlbany's commitment to environmental stewardship. Transportation is a significant source of air pollution and contributor to climate change; therefore, colleges and universities must examine and decrease the environmental impacts that result from commuting to and from campus. For more details visit Parking and Mass Transit Services.

About sixty percent of students regularly utilize alternative transportation, while only ten percent of employee commuters travel by a mode other than a car. Challenge yourself to leave your vehicle in the driveway one day a week for the next month. You may be surprised to learn that you can reshape your trip to and from work and school with little effort. Learn below about some of the initiatives at UAlbany.
