Transportation Services forms student transportation commission

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- In an effort to promote student engagement and dialogue on transportation-related issues on campus, Transportation Services announced the formation of the University Park Student Transportation Commission for the fall semester.

Comprised of student leaders from the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA), Graduate Student Association (GSA), Association of Residence Hall Students (ARHS), Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) and the Student Sustainability Advisory Council (SSAC), representatives will meet monthly with Transportation Services leadership to discuss questions and concerns raised by University students as well as upcoming projects and initiatives.

“The formation of this commission is a proactive approach to communicating with students that we believe will allow us to better understand and address students’ transportation needs,” said Rob DeMayo, director of Transportation Services. “Involving student leadership in our strategic planning will help us stay connected to the entire student community and work together to create future transportation programs.”

"The Student Transportation Commission has the potential to improve student life at Penn State in a number of ways, and I look forward to the progress that is made by the organizations involved this yea," said Anand Ganjam, UPUA president.

The Student Transportation Commission will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 17.
