University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Commuter Services launched a campaign to encourage the use of more sustainable modes of transportation to campus than the single-occupant vehicle. Students, faculty and staff who already employ such alternative commute solutions were invited to come forward to share their stories and practical tips.
The members of this first group of “alternative transportation heroes” are featured in large posters displayed around the Mānoa campus. Brief video interviews, available for viewing on the Commuter Services website, provide further insight into what motivates these individuals to bike, walk, carpool or take public transit.
Alternative transportation heros include Loralee Arnold, H.C. “Skip” Bittenbender, Jane Dornemann, Lori Harting, Ferdinand S. Johns, Alex Kelly, Mark Levin, Luis Longhi, Gertraud Maskarinec, Kristopher Palagi, Austin Poe, Tyneski Quintel, Joanne Romero, Magi Sarvimäki, Sheela Sharma and Vanessa Works.
