Our vision is to reduce the environmental impact of student, faculty, staff, and visitor travel by providing safe, environmentally efficient modes of transportation and the required support infrastructure.

The daily transportation and travel choices made by members of the University community and by visitors to campus affect Northwestern’s greenhouse gas emissions. We will reduce the negative environmental impact of these choices by increasing the availability of options such as biking, walking, and public transportation, and increasing access to charging stations and other infrastructure for electric vehicles.

The Transportation Working Group is the hub for sustainability efforts involving Northwestern’s pedestrian, bicycle, public transportation, and electric vehicle accessibility.
