There are 8,041 faculty and staff members and 2,781 students at the University of Maryland (UM) who park on campus. That's 10,822 people driving to downtown Baltimore to work and study from as far away as Delaware and Pennsylvania and as close by as Charles Village and Federal Hill. Some people share rides, take mass transit, ride their bicycles or walk, but the vast majority of UM's commuters drive alone. Luckily, the University has a number of programs that encourage faculty, staff, and students to make more sustainable choices when it comes to transportation, which one suits you?
