Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In 2012, the Campaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (CUMTD) was responsible for facilitating more than 11.4 million bus, van, and paratransit rides throughout Champaign, Urbana, Savoy, and the University of Illinois Campus. CUMTD operations impact a wide variety of people, lifestyles, and natural resources. For this reason, the organization has made a strong commitment to environmental stewardship, continually working to reduce the resource intensity and environmental effects of their vehicles and facilities. CUMTD received the 2013 Governor's Sustainability Award in recognition of their long-standing vehicle and emissions policies, sustainable infrastructure development, and community engagement efforts. In 2012 alone the District installed water-saving and geothermal technology which saved over $12,000 in annual utility costs.
