Modes of transportation for both students and faculty commutes can greatly affect the greenhouse gases emissions. By providing and supporting alternative forms of transportation (bicycling, rideshare, walking, etc.) the campus can encourage this reduction in emissions.

Campuses can help shape markets by creating demand for and enhancing the visibility of more efficient vehicles and cleaner fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality.

Evaluation can occur on  many different categories, subsidies and strategies to improve: student and employee commute, Ride Share Program, Car Share Program (carpool discounts), public transportation, special parking, bicycle sharing, facilities for bicyclists such as secure areas and overall bicycle plan, condensed or alternative work schedules,  local housing, prohibiting idling, air miles offset programs,  and efficient campus fleet.
