Georgia Tech addresses issues of sustainability in transportation through numerous channels. Research focuses on alternative fuels, fuel efficiency, transportation usage, policy and planning, and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia Tech’s Parking and Transportation Services offers environmentally responsible transportation choices for students, faculty, and staff. Alternative transportation options include Tech Trolleys, Stinger buses, the GT-Emory and Grocery Shuttles, Midnight Rambler, Stingerette nighttime shuttle, and paratransit services. These campus options also connect with alternative transportation choices provided through partnerships with metro transit agencies, including MARTA, Cobb County Transit (CCT), Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA), and Gwinnett County Transit (GCT). For those who drive to campus, carpool permits and SmartPark offer flexibility within the campus parking system.
Zipcar, Zimride, and Ride offer alternative options for those who still want to have access to a car or want to be matched with a carpool. Bike GT provides a resource for those who choose to bike to campus, and the BuzzBike program offers affordable semesterly bike rentals. Numerous bicycle infrastructure improvements have been implemented throughout campus in recent years to encourage both commuting and traveling on campus by bike.
