Pitt Named a “Best Workplace for Commuters”

The following is an excerpt from an article written by Linda K Schmitmeyer that appeared in the Pitt Chronicle, September 26, 2005.

"The University of Pittsburgh was designated one of the Best Workplaces for CommutersSM (BWC) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

The BWC designation recognizes employers that offer environmentally friendly commuter benefits. Pitt was applauded for, among other things, its shuttle service for faculty, staff, and students to adjacent neighborhoods and fare-free access to Allegheny County’s mass transportation system. Both services are accessed using the University ID card.

Pitt offers an array of benefits that help commuters, including carpool parking discounts, free ride-matching for carpools and vanpools, Guaranteed Ride Home program when registered “poolers” have an emergency, six free parking passes per year for each registered van- or carpooler, and free bicycle registration and bike parking. The University also works closely with CommuteInfo, the regional ridesharing provider, to encourage alternative commuting methods. CommuteInfo provides ridesharing information to a 10-county region in Southwestern Pennsylvania."

Evening student permits now begin at 2:50 p.m. in many campus lots. Check out the new student brochure (PDF) for further details.

Approved Leave? Turn in Permit

All Faculty and Staff, if you are going on an approved leave from the University, remember to turn your permit into the Parking Services Office, by the third working day of the current month, to avoid charges for that month. You will be able to get a permit for your lot when you return from leave by stopping in the parking office.

Upper Campus Construction

The VA Project construction may affect traffic and parking on upper campus.


Tired of fighting traffic? Would you rather spend your commute reading, catching up on some work, or napping instead of navigating the streets of Oakland?
