With approximately 10,500 full-time parking permits sold annually at Washington University in St. Louis, vehicles commuting to and from our campuses account for an estimated 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
Through education and changes to policies and infrastructure, we have been actively working to advance low-carbon, active forms of transportation that lessen environmental impact, encourage healthy lifestyles and strengthen our sense of community.
