Electric Buses

The University of Georgia has been awarded $10 million from the state of Georgia to purchase 19 electric buses. The 40-foot electric buses emit no pollution, are quieter and have lower operating costs than existing diesel powered buses. The buses should arrive on campus in late 2017 or 2018 and are part of the university's strategic plan to advance campus sustainability.

UGA reCYCLE | Learn More

UGA reCYCLE is a need-based bicycle recycling and redistribution program for the UGA campus community. The program refurbishes bikes that were abandoned on campus bike racks and puts them in the hands of UGA students and employees who need them for transportation to and from school or work. The reCYCLE program is driven by a coalition of partners including UGA Transportation & Parking, UGA Office of Sustainability, UGA Police Department, and the local nonprofit BikeAthens. The reCYCLE Program was developed in 2014 through a joint venture between UGA Transportation & Parking and the UGA Office of Sustainability, in partnership with Students for Environmental action, and funded in part by a 2015 Sustainability Grant through the Office of Sustainability.
