SBCC encourages electric and hybrid vehicles. Read about the Commute Program in SBCC's student newspaper The Channels. Staff can get setup as a SBCC District Driver to use the SBCC Commuter Program hybrid or electric vehicle.
SBCC Commute is a program supporting the colleges' Transportation Demand Management Plan (TDMP) and the Districts Sustainability Plan. SBCC is commited to the betterment of health and sustainability in our community.
Since 2014 through 2020, the SBCC Commute program had reduced Single Occupied Vehicle
(SOV) use by 13%, expanded infrastructure, added a DIY bike shop, and increased the
number of stakeholders that commute sustainably.
The Commute Program is no longer offering cash incentives to staff to commute sustainably to campus. Nevertheless, the Campus infrastructure remains in place such as adequate motorcycle and bike parking, bike lockers, on campus showers, EV parking, variety of MTD to SBCC routes, skateboard racks, and always supporting carpooling.
Please stay safe, and stay committed to sustainable commuting!
