Research has shown that fan transportation accounts for the lion’s share of carbon emissions associated with large sports events—over 70% on average. It is also the aspect of hosting sports events in which operators have the least control, as teams and venues cannot mandate how fans come and go, and they must operate within the infrastructure that already exists.
However, there are many actions teams, venues, and events can take that encourage and enable fans to get to and from the game in lower-impact ways, such as walking or biking, using public transit, or driving an EV. There are also methods available to reduce the impacts of the time-honored American tradition of tailgating.
On this webinar, we will hear about an in-venue application that eases the uncertainly and anxiety sometimes associated with the transit option, and then we will learn more about the Certification for Sustainable Transportation, which offers education and certification for ‘Eco-Driving’ and the establishment of Anti-Idling Zones. We hope you can join us!
