Parking Lots

The University of Ottawa is reducing the number
  of parking lots on campus in order to move
  cars away from people and encourage
  healthier and more environmentally friendly
  modes of travel.

8 out of 10 campus community members do not
   use a car to commute to campus.

The University is the principle event coordinator
  for Car Free Day for the last 3 years running.

Bicycling Infrastructure

The University of Ottawa has been moving
  towards creating more cycling infrastructure
  to encourage sustainable transportation both
  on and off campus.

The University is working with the City of Ottawa
  to complete the bike path along the Ottawa
  River.

Currently, the University will be building a new
  bicycle co-op at the 200 Lees campus for
  early next year.

Composting

Traditionally the university has used the vermi-
   composter which was able to handle
   approximately 4 tonnes every year.

The University has recently purchased a new
  mechanical composter that can handle
  approximately 200 tonnes every year
