Aggie Commuter Club

The purpose of the Aggie Commuter Club is to encourage and incentivize low-carbon transportation and create a community for faculty, staff, and students who are interested in a more sustainable commute. In order to join the Aggie Commuter Club, individuals must commit to commuting by walking, cycling, carpooling, bussing, or using other low carbon non-single occupancy vehicle. The program incentivizes sustainable travel, such as an emergency ride home program, free daily parking passes, and monthly prize drawings.

Why Should I Join?

  • Save money to use for something more fun than parking
  • Get the health benefits of daily exercise
  • Clear the air
  • No need to compete for parking
  • Cars lasts longer
  • Earn benefits by choosing alternative transportation!

The Commuter Club helps overcome the two main reasons people choose single occupancy vehicles: lack of information on how to do it and lack of convenience. Through the program faculty, staff, and students may access Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs in one place to make it easy to find the best options for them; learn strategies from other participants, and share commute strategies with others.
