There's Still Time to Help: "U of U Health Commuters" Aim to Reduce Traffic Congestion, Improve Air Quality

Dear Colleagues,


There is no question that parking and traffic are two of the biggest concerns for our employees. Additionally, our entire university has rededicated cross-campus efforts to improve air quality for our community. We want to do all we can to improve the quality of life here and we ask you to continue reading and to join us in these efforts.

We are excited to introduce "U of U Health Commuters," a new activity program created in conjunction with TravelWise and the Clear the Air Challenge. By signing up, all U of U Health faculty and staff can do their part to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and preserve parking access for patients no matter where they live or work. 

Eligibility for the program is simple. If you use any form of active transportation (even occasionally), U of U Health welcomes you aboard. Examples include walking, cycling, carpooling, vanpooling, scootering, riding the train or bus, using an electric vehicle, telecommuting, etc.

Click here to visit the U of U Health Commuter Pulse page to learn more about the program and to sign up. Once registered the valet team will even contact you with a welcome t-shirt.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and participation, and don't forget about the Clear the Air Challenge taking place between February 1 – 29, 2020.
