Our Practices...


Alternative Transportation

  • Hunter College's Office of Public Safety regularly uses bicycles instead of patrol vehicles to visit the other satellite campuses when making security rounds 
  • Repurposing Vehicles: Following purchase of a new passenger van to transport Hunter's Athletics sports teams to competition venues, the College repurposed the older van and granted use over to Hunter's Facilities Department, opting to divert from landfill and to extend the vehicular life
  •  

Bicycle Racks

  • Bicycle racks are conveniently provided at the main entrances to all the College's campus buildings -- standardized signage is posted at each area to inform and direct the Hunter community where their bikes may be safely locked while on campus
  •  

University Partnership Program - NJ Transit

  • Hunter College is a participating institution in the New Jersey Transit's University Partnership Program (UPP). Full-time students enrolled in a participating college are eligible to receive a 25% discount on monthly NJ Transit passes -- access to reduced fares enable and encourage students to use mass transit as a primary means of transportation, effectively lowering rates of harmful GHG emissions generated from the usage of individual passenger vehicles
  •  

No Vehicle Idling Policy

  • In accord with New York City law, Hunter College abides by a no-idling policy for vehicles on campus to eliminate congestion and improve public health
