KU Sustainability promotes access to and use of alternative transportation options on and off campus, including safe biking and pedestrian access and use of the KU campus bus system, KU on Wheels, and the Lawrence Transit. Reducing the amount of cars on campus not only mitigates pollution, it also creates a more communal, less stressful campus environment. 

The Center for Sustainability is actively participating in the "Reimagining Parking" Working Group to support parking improvements that enhance campus sustainability, such as carpool parking or additional lots with sustainability features, like Lot 54
