Transportation and Parking has worked with the campus community to understand developing impacts to campus commuting for fall 2020. Efforts have included collaboration with campus representatives from the Advisory Committee on Transportation (ACT) and others within the community to understand and support changes to commuter populations, including teleworking and hybrid learning schedules, and to mitigate impacts related to transit capacity reductions associated with social distancing.
