WMSU implements new transportation policy to promote efficient vehicle usage
In a bid to improve transportation efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) has introduced a new transportation policy by virtue of memorandum order no. 000978, series of 2022. The policy emphasizes the importance of maximizing vehicle capacity and discourages the practice of nominal passenger trips.
Under this new policy, WMSU aims to prioritize full vehicle capacity by encouraging the coordination and scheduling of trips. By optimizing the number of passengers per trip, the University intends to ensure the efficient utilization of vehicles and reduce unnecessary trips. This approach not only promotes cost savings but also contributes to lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions.
One of the key aspects of the policy is the strict prohibition of nominal passenger trips, where vehicles are operated with insufficient passenger occupancy. This measure aims to discourage the wasteful use of vehicles and increase awareness about the benefits of traveling with full capacity. By eliminating nominal passenger trips, WMSU seeks to promote responsible transportation practices and minimize environmental impact.
The University also plans to launch awareness campaigns among employees, customers, and stakeholders to educate them about the advantages of full vehicle capacity. These efforts will highlight the positive impacts such as reduced fuel consumption, lower emissions, and cost savings for both individuals and the environment.
By implementing this transportation policy, WMSU hopes to lead by example and encourage sustainable transportation practices among its community. The University envisions a future where efficient vehicle usage becomes the norm, contributing to a greener and more environmentally conscious campus.
WMSU’s transportation policy aligns with the global push for sustainable development and reinforces the institution’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint. As more organizations and institutions adopt similar measures, it is anticipated that the cumulative impact will create a positive change for the environment and society as a whole.
