Purchase College is invested in improving the efficiency of its campus fleet and providing opportunities for sustainable transit.
Greening our fleet
With vehicles ranging from cars, vans, trucks, and snow plows, the environmental impact of modernizing is significant. The College is retiring from its fleet the older, less reliable vehicles and has already replaced two with hybrids, and eleven with electric. We will continue on this path as older vehicles age out from the fleet. To support these types of vehicles and follow the decarbonization efforts presented by Executive Order 22, the College is investigating installing EV charging stations for campus use.
Sustainable Travel and Commuting
- Purchase provides a free shuttle, the Loop, to our campus community to and from Port Chester and White Plains. The shuttle schedule as well as additional information can be found on the Parking and Transportation website.
- The Westchester County Bee-line stops at Purchase bus stops to local cities such as White Plains, Armonk and Port Chester for a fee.
- Purchase is a member of the 511NY Rideshare program that allows commuters to connect with neighbors to ride-share and reduce the inefficiency of single drivers. As a member, there is a Guaranteed Ride Guarantee. This program serves all of New York state and is sponsored by the Department of Transportation.
- Riding a bicycle is a great way to be active. Bikes are not only sustainable, they’re also time efficient in getting to, from, and around campus. Find more resources on the Parking and Transportation website.
