Going Greener - Point A to Point B

MORRIS ARBORETUM

Getting from Point A to Point B is a project aimed at providing easy, free, safe, and environmentally conscious transportation from Penn’s urban campus to the Morris Arboretum.  In total, 10 bus trip programs were successfully executed between April 2010 and April 2012, introducing over 300 Penn students to the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania.

Working together with Penn Transit’s Chartered Bus services, the University and the Arboretum presented students with regular opportunities to enjoy a reprieve from the city, visit the garden, learn about the environment, and experience the many benefits that the multidisciplinary center has to offer.  The project was open to students from across the University, in order to encourage an exchange of ideas and experiences from a variety of student perspectives.
