In an effort to continue the momentum of RecycleMania, Green UH and METRO held the Green Commuter Fair in the UC Satellite on February 8 and 9. These two organizations teamed up to teach students more about becoming a green commuter. One of the main purposes of the fair was to give students the opportunity to sign up for a student fare METRO Q Card on site during the two-day event.

�We are very happy with the turnout at this semester�s Green Commuter Fair,� said Eric Holamon, Customer Service Manager for Parking and Transportation Services. �The expedited on-site processing helped speed the process up, allowing us to accommodate nearly 200 new commuters. This kind of turnout is essential in helping us achieve our goal of getting 5 percent of the campus to utilize some form of green commuting by 2012.�

The Metro Q Fare Card �is the quick and convenient way to pay for METRO services,� according to their website. The student METRO Q Fare Card has many additional benefits: it is discounted 50 percent off the full fare, and students can earn five free trips for every 50 paid trips. Normally, students would have to make a trip to the METRO RideStore in order to sign up for the cards, but the fair provided a convenient service right on campus. Students were able to receive their cards in about 30 minutes after submitting their student ID number to verify enrollment.

Students were also able to receive information about the METRO bus schedule as well as the events calendar for RecycleMania. The METRO officials were also on site to answer questions about the METRO Q Fare Card and other services.
