SPRING 2012 GREEN COMMUTER FAIR
was back on campus on Feb. 7-8 to offer convenient service and
encourage students to become green commuters by using mass
transit. During the Green Commuter fair, stations were set up at
the UC Satellite and PGH breezeway from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to
sign up students for METRO Q cards. Students who sign up for a Q
card receive half off fares when they ride METRO.
During the fair, students enrolled in classes were able to
simply fill out a registration form and have their Q card
printed on site by METRO representatives. METRO was also able to
accommodate students in need of renewals. Faculty and staff also
stopped by to speak with representatives from Parking and
Transportation Services about joining the Commuter Club and
receiving discounts on METRO fares.
Hertz On Demand was available during the fair to sign up
students and faculty/staff for the on-campus car sharing
program. Members of the program can rent a car for an hourly
rate that includes gas and insurance. The car sharing program
offers an alternative to bringing your car to campus by making
it easy and affordable to use a car only when you need it.
To add money to the Q cards, students can visit the parking desk
located at the Welcome Center Parking Garage. For more
