Carpooling at URI

A green house gas (GHG) emissions inventory performed in 2011 reports that commuting to the Kingston (main) campus accounts for approximately 20% of URI’s total emissions. 

Transportation on campus presents one of URI’s more difficult emissions mitigation projects because, in most cases, it is not possible to have direct control over commuter behavior. However, projects can be implemented to encourage and support more desirable commuting patterns. Carpooling is a great way to save gas, make friends, and help URI reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
