The International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI) recognized Stanford Transportation as an outstanding program in parking, transportation, and mobility

In summer 2020, IPMI recognized Stanford Transportation for its innovative efforts to assist Stanford commuters relocating to the Stanford Redwood City (SRWC) campus. The outreach effort incorporated a commute resilience campaign and included new resources and events to help commuters choose and adjust to their new commutes. 

With an award titled “Mobility Marketing Program,” IPMI featured Stanford Transportation’s effort and highlighted the following initiatives: 

  1. IPMI AwardEngaging with commuters through various surveys and events, such as “Try Your Commute Days,” First Friday commute events, and bike registration at the new campus. 
  2. Furthering transparency by creating a monthly SRWC email newsletter with shuttle updates, garage safety tips, commute options, alternative transportation details, and more. 
  3. Asking commuters to provide commute resilience tips and tricks and receiving over 1,000 entries that were highlighted in subsequent communications.
