Learning About Commuting Options at the Employee Resource & Commuter Fair: October 11

October 5, 2010, Volume 57, No. 06

Did you ever wonder about alternative ways to get to get to work? Driving now but interested in learning about public transit options for you where you live?

In an effort to help Penn faculty and staff learn about the wide array of transportation alternatives available to them in this region, Business Services will be hosting its third annual Commuter Fair in conjunction with the Employee Resource Fair on Monday, October 11 from noon to 2 p.m. in Bodek Lounge at Houston Hall.

The event will feature information on public transportation, biking and bike safety, car and van pooling and other options to driving whether to and from campus, across town or out to the tri-state suburbs. Representatives from Amtrak, SEPTA and PATCO will be on hand to help individuals plan their routes.  A “Pedaling at Penn” table will focus on bike safety, maintenance and tips on bike commuting. The Clean Air Council will introduce the “Emergency Ride Home” program. Faculty and staff can also meet with staff from Penn Transit and Penn Parking to learn about special discounts for Penn employees when they use mass transit as well as transportation options on and around campus. Please call (215) 898-9155 if you need additional information or if you have any questions.
