The U’s impact on air quality

How is the U curbing its own emissions?


Humans of the U: Martin Cuma

“I’ve enjoyed bicycling since I was a kid, back in the Czech Republic. It provided the freedom to move around without depending on either public transit or my parents. When I moved to Salt Lake in 1998 for my postdoc it felt natural to continue riding. I save on a parking pass and car costs and it forces me to get up on my bike every morning and ride to work.”


A healthier community and U

When active transportation is a part of your lifestyle, you save money on fuel, spend less time in traffic and get your daily workout as part of your commute while improving air quality.
