SAN FRANCISCO–With its mission to educate and promote sustainable transportation, Transport Presidio is proud to host Presidio Graduate School’s first “Sustainable Transportation Faire” this weekend at 2nd Residency. At the faire, attendees will discover the work of many regional and statewide organizations and their connection to sustainable transportation, be it through equity, social justice, air quality and environmental protection, and so forth. Attending organizations will have a booth to display general literature and technical information, staffed by respective personnel.

“This will be an excellent opportunity for attendees, not only in learning the great work done for sustainable transportation, but also the professional networking activities available to students, faculty and staff,” stated Greg Justice, Transport Presidio Co-Chair.

The Sustainable Transportation Faire will occur in the first-floor atrium of the Alliant campus on Saturday, 20 February, from 12:30–14:00, concurrently with PGS’ Spring Student Association Faire. No registration or advance notice for attendance is required, and complementary snacks and refreshments will be provided.

THESE EVENTS ARE FOR CURRENT PGS STUDENTS, STAFF AND ALUMNI.
