Each day, thousands of students, faculty and staff travel to the Stevens campus in Hoboken. With this many people traveling to and from campus, it is environmentally irresponsible for each person to drive a car. To reduce emissions, Stevens students can take simple steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
Stevens’ hometown of Hoboken is one of the New York Metropolitan Area’s major transportation hubs. Students and visitors have a wide array of transportation choices. Thanks to these many options, it was estimated that 93% of students were travelling to and from campus using more sustainable commuting options (compared to single-occupancy vehicles) in the 2018-2019 academic year.
Members of the Stevens community can take advantage of the university’s complementary shuttle service for travel between campus and:
- Hoboken Terminal/PATH station (Blue)
- 9th Street light rail station/Jersey City Heights elevator (Green)
- Stevens-leased housing property locations (Red/Gray)
In addition to abundant bicycle parking on campus, the Stevens community has discounted access to JerseyBike, which has two docking stations on campus (8th St and River Terrace), and many more throughout the City of Hoboken.
- New Jersey Transit trains and buses
- Hudson-Bergen Light Rail
- NY Waterway ferries
Car Parking & EV Charging
In addition to the abundant public transportation options, Stevens encourages more sustainable commuting by offering free Electric Vehicle (EV) charging to campus parking permit holders. There are currently five chargers in the Babbio Garage, with plans to add more.
Don’t have a car, but need one? Zipcar vehicles are located on 8th St.
Stevens is dedicated to the reduction of fossil fuel consumption by committing to having all new fleet vehicles be hybrid or electric.
In 2017 Stevens purchased an electric vehicle that is being used by the Facilities Department Locksmith Shop. Additionally, Stevens has placed in service a 2019 Ford Police Responder Hybrid sedan for use by Campus Police.
If supplies can be moved to the Gate House, Facilities plans to purchase EV carts that are not required to be road-ready, reducing operating costs as well as our carbon footprint.
