Get2MDC.com Promotes Green Ways Of Commuting

By Kimberly Cabrera

The website, www.get2MDC.com, promotes green ways of commuting by transit, carpooling, biking or walking to school for rewards and prizes.

The initiative is a partnership between Miami Dade College and South Florida Commuter Services, a subsidiary of the Florida Department of Transportation, to increase the number of students and faculty that carpool.

Get2MDC.com offer students a variety of benefits including 50 percent off monthly transit passes at campus bookstores for full-time students. The website promotes GREEN by informing students on ways they can protect the environment while also saving money through biking or walking.

The website also has a household carbon footprint calculator, which can help estimate a family’s greenhouse gas emissions and suggest ways that can reduce emissions.
