Dickson Plaza 01-00354 copy2 blogPeople often think all we do is provide parking on campus, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Sure, parking is part of it. Most of it, however, is getting you access to campus. That's what we're all about: being green, sustainable and safe.

To highlight some of our goals, accomplishments and best practices, we've made this nifty video. Check it out below and on our YouTube channel.

 

UCLA Transportation Awarded Energy Champions

etaward_nov2016

etaward_nov2016Sunday night's basketball game against Long Beach State at Pauley Pavilion was dedicated to UCLA Transportation and its efforts in promoting sustainable transportation.

Along with a Bruin victory, Energy Upgrade California—a state initiative aimed at saving energy and conserving natural resources—presented Renee Fortier, executive director of UCLA Event & Transportation; Penny Menton, director of communications, organizational development & commuter services; and Dave Karwaski, senior associate director of planning, policy & traffic systems, with the Energy Champion award.

The award recognizes UCLA Transportation's "leadership in making UCLA and California a model of clean energy and sustainability" by providing sustainable transportation options designed to encourage the entire UCLA community to carpool, bike, walk, vanpool and use public transit. UCLA Transportation has dramatically reduced traffic generated by single occupancy vehicles and the corresponding greenhouse gas emissions.

Congratulations for being Energy Champions!
