FRESNO, Calif. — More students are looking for ways to get to Fresno State other than the traditional four-wheeled automobile, The Collegian reported.

This trend isn’t just about students being actively aware of their environment either. Fresno State parking and transportation manager Thomas Gaffery said it’s happening in part because the department is making efforts to bring students to campus in alternative ways.

After finding that about 10 percent of students live within a mile of campus, Traffic Operations has made an effort to get those students to campus without taking single-passenger trips by looking into improving bicycle access, creating specialized parking for carpooling and improving convenience of buses.
