91% of students and 40% of faculty and staff participate in sustainable commuting optionsTransportation

Get where you need to go by bus, bike, carsharing or personal mobility! Sustainable transportation is good for health, air quality, and reduces our carbon footprint on campus.

Reducing single-occupancy vehicle usage is key for a greener future. Reducing emissions from business travel and commuting is a part of our goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2035.  Reaching this goal depends on the daily choices of thousands of people across campus.  Cornell provides many resources to support flexible choices for transportation and encourage sustainable transit options like bus, biking, carpooling, ridesharing, and walking.
