Sustainability at Duke

Transportation

With more than 30,000 employees, thousands of students, and tens of thousands of visitors, Duke University and Health System generate significant demand for transportation.  Meeting that need requires the use of public transit and alternative modes of transportation. Vehicle use contributes to traffic congestion, high infrastructure costs, and pollution.  At Duke, we are striving to increase the convenience and incentives for commuters using alternative modes of transportation in order to achieve carbon neutrality, preserve green space and prevent congestion.  Duke has received recognition for the infrastructure and incentives provided for alternative commuting, including being named "Best Workplace for Commuters" and "Bicycle Friendly University".
