Growing enrollment and expanding physical campus facilities continue to compound the already complicated task of managing the transportation of constituents to, from, and around campus. Parking spots are in short supply, and in an attempt to alleviate this situation, schools are increasingly focusing on providing and incentivizing alternative transportation options including transit pass programs, occasional car programs, improved accommodations for bikers, occasional parking passes, and carpool incentives.

While these programs provide value to both the campus and the commuter, selecting the right mix of programs for your campus, funding these initiatives, and marketing their value to the campus community creates an additional set of challenges. Join us for a program that will guide attendees through considerations for creating or improving a comprehensive alternative transportation program. The conference includes a half-day site visit to investigate the progress made at the University of California-Irvine’s campus.


The audience for this topic includes executive directors, directors, assistant directors, and managers of transportation and parking offices. Campus security or public safety officers also responsible for parking and transportation operations would also benefit from this content, as would any campus planning, facilities management, and sustainability coordinators or advocates who are involved with campus transportation management.

Site visit: University of California-Irvine

The University of California-Irvine’s campus has been focusing on its alternative transportation strategy since 2007 and has seen impressive progress in the past five years. This site visit will feature some of the highlights of UC-Irvine’s strategy, including bike and pedestrian infrastructure, shuttle services, appropriate signage, and occasional car, vanpool, and carpool programs.
