Green Trek is an initiative started by Wake Tech to encourage students and employees to use more sustainable forms of transportation. We want to move away from driving in a car alone to carpools, buses, bicycles and walking. The goal is to reduce the number of vehicle miles traveled by decreasing the number of cars on the road. This is a regional partnership effort that also includes GoRaleigh, GoTriangle, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and other agencies and organizations.
