U.S. PIRG report on universities efforts to reduce driving

The U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund has released a report, "A New Course: How Innovative University Programs Are Reducing Driving on Campus and Creating New Models for Transportation Policy."  The report looks at what universities around the country are doing to shift students and faculty away from single-occupant, personal vehicle use and toward walking, bicycling, car sharing, ride sharing, and other types of sustainable transportation.  The report also examines the various reasons why universities are doing this and what they, and society, stand to gain from their success in doing so.
