Sustainable Travel

In line with its Environmental Sustainability Policy, Rhodes University strives to promote opportunities for sustainable travel, including efficient public and communal transport, cycling and walking, in order to minimise greenhouse gas emissions and reduce traffic and parking congestion on campus.

Rhodes University has a student-run car-sharing organisation, RydeAlong. Staff and students are encouraged to share transport wherever practicable. Benefits include spending less money on travel, fewer parking hassles, less congestion on the roads, and a much cleaner environment.
