Does the institution have other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting?:

A brief description of other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting:

CSUF Employees who participate in a sustainable commute option at least 70% of their scheduled work days are eligible to receive financial rewards and reimbursements. For example, those who use the train (Metrolink) to go to work are eligible for a reimbursement of up to $120/month, depending on the cost of their train pass.

CSUF offers a Commuter Choice Program designed to reduce the number of single occupant vehicle (SOV) trips to the campus. A major part of this effort is aimed at faculty and staff (employees) and designed to help the campus comply with the Southern California Air Quality Management District (AQMD) Rule 2202. The Rule requires employers with 250 or more employees to provide commute options during peak commute hours of 6AM to 10AM which reduces mobile source emissions and to comply with the Federal Clean Air Act. Commute options include carpool, rail, transit, walk, bike and vanpool. A secondary goal of the Commuter Choice Program is to mitigate parking demand and traffic congestion on the main campus.
