PCC renews effort to reduce automobile commutes to campuses
Photos and Story by Gina Whitehill-Baziuk
Due to increased enrollment at all PCC campuses and centers, parking has become a significant challenge for students, faculty and staff, as well as for neighbors and businesses near PCC campuses wrestling with blocked driveways and lack of parking for customers.
To address the issue, PCC is in the process of selecting a consultant to advise the College on new strategies and expanding existing programs to persuade more students, faculty and staff to use alternative modes of transportation, e.g. bike, bus, shuttles and walking. The consultant will examine existing conditions and address transportation issues at both a district and campus level.
As the College continues to grow as an educational institution, PCC is committed to finding ways to get people out of their cars and reduce greenhouse gases at all PCC facilities. These efforts will help the College meet the President’s Climate Commitment.
