NCSU has a Transportation Demand Management Program called WolfTrails that oversees all sustainable transportation programs on campus. WolfTrails provides commuter incentives for those that bike, walk, take transit, carpool, vanpool, or telework. Incentives include the GoPass and reduced parking options for carpoolers, vanpoolers, and bike, walk, and transit commuters who need to drive to campus occasionally. Additionally, all NCSU employees who use an alternative mode for their commute to campus are eligible for GoTriangle's FREE emergency ride home program (ERH). Emergency Ride Home also known as ERH provides commuters who regularly carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or use transit with a reliable ride home for emergencies.
