ACC Green Pass is making a difference

Today, Austin Community College posted the results of their annual transportation survey. The text of the article is pasted below. The key findings show that the Green Pass program is at least one factor in an uptick in the use of public transportation to get to ACC. This is great news, and we have really enjoyed working with ACC to make transit available to students, faculty and staff.

Latest Transportation Survey Results Now Available

Results from the 2010 ACC Transportation Survey are now available. Late last year, the college’s Office of Environmental Stewardship invited students and employees to complete a survey related to their transportation needs. Topics included mode of transportation to ACC, use of public transportation, and the college’s Green Pass and Green Car initiatives.

The findings include:

  • 73 percent use a personal vehicle to commute to ACC. This is a drop from 79 percent in 2009.
  • 16 percent use public transportation, up from 10 percent in 2009.
  • Among those who use public transportation, more than half said they started because of Green Pass.
  • More than 10 percent own a Green Car.

    Progress is progress, I suppose…but for the accommodation that has been provided to them, that strikes me as being still way too many ACC students driving to school.
