As a Catholic University, St. Thomas seeks to cultivate an ethic of care for God’s creation through sustainable stewardship of our resources. We know that decreasing reliance on the automobile is one element of this ethic. As more students and employees embrace transit, we reduce our collective carbon footprint and relieve pressure on our limited parking resources as well.
So St. Thomas has many reasons to celebrate our partnership with Metro Transit, including the new offer of discounted College Passes for incoming students announced in this newsletter. We expect that more students will take advantage of the unlimited transit access that College Pass provides, and the creation will be better for it.
