Arlington Campus: Get $100 Monthly After Starting a Sustainable Commute

Mason’s Arlington Campus has joined Sustain & Save, a regional program available to those who switch from driving alone to a sustainable option for most of their monthly commute. Faculty or staff who currently drive and pay tolls along I-66 to get to the Arlington Campus can receive $100 each month they choose to take public transit, vanpool, carpool, walk, or bike into work. 

The enrollment process is quick and easy. Start by reaching out to Mason’s Sustain & Save rep, Katie Thompson, to see if you qualify.
