Community Featured Transportation

Active Transportation Month: April 2017

Join the Office of Sustainability, Parking and Transportation Services and our partners for a month of exciting events centered around Active Transportation! Active Transportation – biking, walking, and using public transit – is beneficial not only to the environment but to personal health and wellness, and is becoming increasingly significant on our campus with the changes in parking as the University executes the east end redevelopment project. Our programming during the month of April aims to both educate and excite the WashU community about Active Transportation with a series of fun activities and events!
