As part of its sustainability efforts and programs to become carbon neutral by mid-century, Gonzaga University will offer complimentary Spokane Transit Authority bus passes to faculty, students and staff beginning mid-September.
“We believe this program will … reduce the number of single-occupancy cars on campus, and decrease congestion in the Logan neighborhood. This effort not only demonstrates Gonzaga’s concern for the environment in a practical, everyday way but shows how relatively small changes can, collectively, add up to major and measureable impacts,” said Jim Simon, Gonzaga’s director of sustainability, in a press release.
The program is a response to Gonzaga’s first comprehensive Climate Action Plan (approved in 2013), which targets the goal for Gonzaga to achieve carbon neutrality – net zero emissions – by 2050.
Gonzaga faculty, students or staff interested in participating in the program are encouraged to contact Simon, via email at email@example.com. Details on the mid-September distribution of passes to the Gonzaga community will be forthcoming through internal GU channels.
