With around 150,000 trips to and from UBC each day, encouraging more sustainable modes of transportation is critical to meeting UBC’s sustainability goals. We’re working on reducing automobile trips by promoting public transit, walking, cycling and carpooling, and the results are promising. Since 1997, transit ridership to campus has more than quadrupled, and two thirds of trips are now made by these more sustainable modes of transport.
Our Transportation Plan describes the initiatives UBC is taking in the areas of walking, cycling, transit, driving, accessibility, circulation, service, and other transportation measures.
Just under 15% of people travel to and from UBC by carpool or vanpool. It’s a simple way for many of us to reduce our emissions while saving money, reducing congestion and conserving energy along the way.
A shuttle service for people with temporary or permanent conditions that impact mobility, who need assistance traveling to areas of campus that can otherwise only be accessed by foot.
