UMD Smart Commute is the sustainable transportation program at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Our goal is to provide campus faculty, staff, students and visitors with options and incentives that encourage the use of sustainable transportation options to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles coming to and parking on campus. UMD Smart Commute is all about how to get to, from and around UMD in a way that saves money, time and the planet. Biking, transit, walking and ridesharing are all healthy transportation options that take the stress out of your commute.

Join UMD Smart Commute and rethink your ride!
