Name of the campaign:
GO!State Transportation Campaign

A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged:

The GO!State Transportation Campaign is a branded marketing campaign aimed at increasing awareness of sustainable commuting options. It was implemented on digital screens around campus, on the web, and on signage. The program highlighted biking, walking, transit, the campus shuttle, and ride sharing. This coincided with a re-branding of the university's Parking and Transportation website to focus on making transit information more readily available.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

SF State employees, students and staff participate in a transportation survey and the latest results show increased transit usage, biking, and walking as commute modes. This is not necessarily a direct result of the GO!State campaign.
