OP-T2-32: Carpool/Vanpool Matching
Director of Environment and Energy Conservation
Does the institution participate in a carpool/vanpool matching program?:
A brief description of the program:
STJ successfully launched its partnership with NY Rideshare in February to help cut the University's greenhouse gas emissions by engaging participation in NYS DOT Clean Air Campus program to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles on the road. Benefits of this program will be improving local air quality as well as employees’ commute through carpooling matching.
The survey responses were very forthcoming and revealed that more than half of employees who responded drive to work alone which makes the carpool initiative a great benefit for those individuals.
