CASE 15 CAMPUS GREEN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM ING PEK SIT Y E V R UNI
With an overall road-planning strategy that clearly separates pedestrians from motor vehicles , Peking University actively encourages walking and cycling by placing cars outside of the campus . In 2008, with cooperation from the local government, car-parking spaces were constructed in the surrounding area, helping to reduce the frequency that motor vehicles enter the campus. At the same time, a shuttle-bus service was introduced to offer staff and students an alternative way of getting around the different campus sites. To reduce the frequency of vehicles entering the campus, the shuttle-bus service encourages mobility between the main faculty residential community and campus. While it has provided convenience for university staff and alleviated the pressure of campus traffic, it has also helped reduce energy consumption, pollution and emissions.
