While we cannot directly control commuter choices, we do have the means to lower many barriers that prevent commuters from choosing alternative transportation.
Our Campus Master Plan calls for campus transformations that improve parking and traffic challenges while “greening” the campus. As part of planning, the University conducted a transportation assessment that considered traffic circulation and access, parking, regional transportation, and pedestrian facilities. The findings informed the “gray to green” objective of the plan, which aims to transform surface parking lots to open spaces and improves pedestrian and bicycle connections throughout the campus.
New multi-story parking structures such as the College Park parking garage built in 2011 saves parking space while reducing vehicle traffic on campus.
The College Park District development is a catalyst for the revitalization of the adjacent downtown Arlington district, creating a hub that attracts more students and faculty to live on and near campus than ever before.
The University is stakeholder and participant of the City of Arlington’s 10-year Hike and Bike System Master Plan, a long-term blueprint for increasing bicycle and walking trails within the city and across campus boundaries.
ISGI offers a car-sharing program as part of its commitment to creating a more sustainable campus for students, faculty and staff. Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, is open to those over 18 years of age and who have been licensed for at least one year (domestic and international). Students, faculty or staff may join the membership program for $25, then pay $7.50 per hour or $69 a day to reserve one of four vehicles parked on campus.
The cost includes gas, insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, wireless technology, and other features. Visit www.zipcar.com/uta for more information
Idling engines create exhaust that impacts air quality and increases health risks to faculty, students, staff, drivers, operators, and the community at large. The City of Arlington prohibits idling for more than five minutes from April through October. The University’s Anti-idling policy, which is based on the City’s codes, applies year-round to all UT Arlington fleet vehicles and visiting vehicles over 14,000 pounds. The campus police fine all violators.
