KCU Gets On Board With the Green Commute Challenge

The results are in, and KCU's numbers are up for this year's Mid-America Regional Council's Green Commute Challenge! Our faculty, students and staff enthusiastically chose transportation modes other than "single car- single driver" to reduce ozone pollution during peak summer months.

KCU's number of participants more than doubled this year over 2015, saving an estimated 309 gallons of fuel through carpooling, taking public transportation, riding a bicycle, walking to campus or working from home. The combined efforts resulted in keeping more than 6,000 pounds of greenhouse gases out of the air. Congratulations to all for a job well done!
