DOTS charging stations, cards emphasize sustainability

To unite the university and the local community and reduce the area’s carbon footprint, DOTS officials developed several incentives for residents to choose greener transportation options.
Over the past four years, the Department of Transportation Services had partnered with city officials to provide transportation cards that would allow residents to ride Shuttle-UM for free. In 2011, DOTS employees also installed several electric car charging stations on the campus that are open to the public and free of charge to use.
DOTS officials said because electric cars can only travel so far before needing another charge, the charging stations were more aimed toward encouraging city residents to drive electric.
“This particular initiative is geared toward people who live in our immediate neighborhood,” DOTS Assistant Director Beverly Malone said. “We would expect people in the local community to buy electric cars.”
Malone added drivers with electric cars would be eligible for a 50-percent reduction on their campus parking registration fees.
