NYU’s location makes commuting for students, staff, and faculty simple and environmentally friendly. With an extensive public transportation system in place, NYU’s direct greenhouse gas emissions from transportation are only 1.6%.
New York City has a very diverse transportation system. If you can't walk to your destination, mass transit is the next-best way to get around. The City's rail and bus system is run by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). It's inexpensive, environmentally friendly and a great way to see sights throughout the five boroughs—and it operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
