When HCC first evaluated our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions, we discovered that most of our impact came from travel. Just over 75% of our GHG emissions were from student and faculty commuting. As a commuter school this is one of the more difficult tasks to tackle, but it is something that the college is committed to improving.
HCC has several electric vehicle charging stations and owns an electric van for college use. We also have reserved parking spaces for carpool and hybrid vehicles, as well as bicycle racks.
Please consider carpooling or take advantage of purchasing a discount bus pass through our partnership with the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART). With their help, HCC students can purchase discounted full semester passes for $110.
