Wake Tech Community College
Wake Technical Community College (Wake Tech) is a two-year public institution serving Wake County residents by providing curriculum and continuing education for more than 65,000 students each year. The College operates five campuses, employs more 1700 faculty and staff, and offers courses at more than 60 community sites.
In 2010, Wake Tech President Dr Stephen Scott signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, pledging Wake Tech to a leadership role in environmental stewardship.
The Wake Tech ZOOM program (Zeroing Ozone Output Measures) is a green initiative designed to reduce the college's carbon footprint by increasing participation in alternative transportation: public transit, carpools, vanpools and any form of transportation other than single occupancy vehicles.
Capital Area Transit (CAT) runs express buses on Route 40E every hour, to and from Moore Square Transit Station Downtown to Wake Tech's Main Campus. This route is free for all Wake Tech students and staff.
Carpools and Ridesharing
As part of Wake Tech's continuing efforts to lower carbon emissions and traffic congestion, Wake Tech encourages students and employees to use the online carpool program shartheridenc.org.
Wake Tech also works with Triangle Transit to organize vanpools for employees. Vans provided by Triangle Transit park for free at Wake Tech. Triangle Transit provides the van, pays for gas and insurance, and arranges, oversees and pays for all maintenance. Riders pay a low monthly fare based on monthly round-trip mileage.
