Columbia University is located in a dense urban environment with plenty of near-to-campus housing and an extensive transit system. Because of this, Columbia’s environmental impact from transportation is minimal. Less than 2% of students and 17% of employees choose a drive-alone commute. Even still, the University has sought out ways to lead by example and implement measures that reduce environmental impact from its operations. Columbia provides intercampus shuttles, creates incentives that reduce vehicular traffic to upper Manhattan from affiliates commuting to campus, and is pursuing the electrification of campus vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
