Transportation Options to, from, and around TCNJ
Summary of 2014 TCNJ Transportation Survey Results are available here: PC3 Transit Survey Report!
Walking to and from campus is a free, convenient way of transportation. Did you know that more than 50% of students live less than two miles from campus, yet only 10% of students walk to campus? You can save time (parking and then walking to your class) and money (gas!) by walking to campus. For more information about the benefits of walking, read this piece; to plot your route to school, use google maps.
If more people bike or walk to campus instead of driving themselves, we will be able to reduce the approximately 20% of TCNJ’s greenhouse gas emissions that are the result of commuting to and from campus. PC3 works to promote biking to and from campus to help the campus community reduce greenhouse gases, save time, save money, reduce traffic, and get some exercise. For more information about biking to and from campus, visit this site.
