Penn St. forms student transportation commission

Posted on September 22, 2014

In an effort to promote student engagement and dialogue on transportation-related issues on campus, Transportation Services announced the formation of the University Park Student Transportation Commission for the fall semester.

Comprised of student leaders from the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA), Graduate Student Association (GSA), Association of Residence Hall Students (ARHS), Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) and the Student Sustainability Advisory Council (SSAC), representatives will meet monthly with Transportation Services leadership to discuss questions and concerns raised by University students as well as upcoming projects and initiatives.

“The formation of this commission is a proactive approach to communicating with students that we believe will allow us to better understand and address students’ transportation needs,” said Rob DeMayo, director, Transportation Services. “Involving student leadership in our strategic planning will help us stay connected to the entire student community and work together to create future transportation programs.”
