Transportation SWATeam (In Progress)

Project History

  • 2/22/2018

    The Transportation SWATeam had their first meeting of the semester. They discussed their formal recommendation for a new mode share study and opportunities for expansion of Green Fleet certification to new campus fleets.

  • 1/22/2018

    The Transportation SWATeam met to discuss a proprosal for the creation and dissemination of a new campus-wide modeshare survey as well as potential options for moving forward with the provision of winter bike storage on campus. 


The Transportation SWATeam is a team of faculty, staff and students who work to advance the 2015 iCAP transportation objectives. The team forms recommendations to reduce the 10% of campus emissions which are attributable to transportation. We address air travel emissions, fleet emissions, single-occupancy vehicle usage, renewable fuels, and active transportation.

Based on FY14 data, transportation emissions have increased by 30% since the FY08 baseline.  Because emissions from the fleet and commuting are down by three and six percent, respectively, the increase in total transportation emissions is entirely due to a 52% increase in air travel emissions relative to FY08.
