The Riverside Eagle Green car parking at acc riverside

HOW N GREE ARE ? ? ? U O Y An eco-friendly car will lessen your carbon footprint and get you farther on a gallon of gas, but did you know it can also get you a better parking space at ACC? If you drive a fuel-efficient, lowemission vehicle, you could be eligible to park in a limited number of new preferred parking spots at each ACC campus. Follow the simple steps at http://www.austincc.edu/sustainability/ greencar.php to get your Green Car Sticker. Spaces are limited, so a sticker does not necessarily guarantee you a preferred spot. And remember, greener ways to get to class include walking, bicycling, taking the bus, or carpooling!
