To reduce transportation-generated carbon emissions and other pollutants, Wesleyan is developing strategies to travel more sustainably.

  • Wesleyan's fleet now has 12 electric vehicles and many fuel-efficient vehicles.  When buying new vehicles, Wesleyan prioritizes those that are electric or hybrid electric.
  • In Fall 2013, Wesleyan began a partnership with CT Rides, a CT DOT program that coordinates ride matching and offers rewards to students and employees who travel sustainably.
  • If you're looking for an alternative, there are lots of transportation options, whether you're looking to carpool, borrow a bike, use a Zipcar, hitch a ride via Wheeli, or take public transportation.
