State of CT DOT proudly recognizes UB as a 2021 CTrides Transportation Leader Silver Level

The State of Connecticut Department of Transportation has recognized the University of Bridgeport as a 2021 CTrides Transportation Leader. The award is presented for outstanding leadership in making Connecticut a better place to live and work by increasing the use of sustainable commuting modes that reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality.

This program is extremely important as Connecticut faces the growing challenge of climate change. By encouraging employees to use alternatives to driving alone to work, we are helping in the fight to reduce a major contributor to climate change, greenhouse gas emissions from single-occupant vehicles. Our leadership in this effort is critical to the economic and environmental wellbeing of Connecticut and to the health of its residents.
