Reimagining Campus Mobility: Princeton Moves to 100% Electric Transit Operations

Presented by: Charlie Tennyson, CAPP - Princeton University; Paulo Nunes-Ueno - Nunes-Ueno Consulting; Michelle Poyourow - Jarrett Walker + Associates.

This year, Princeton’s TigerTransit fleet will be one of the few operations in the country to operate 100% electric with no diesel “safety net.” The transition to electric operations began during a bigger, year-long effort to reimagine campus mobility. Shuttles, bikeshare, carshare, on-demand service, cycling, and walking were all part of a new Campus Mobility Framework, which has changed the way the university integrates mobility and public transit into its short- and long-term plans.


  • Evaluate challenges and benefits to rolling out route changes and fleet electrification at the same time.
  • Understand how to balance the needs and desires of very different stakeholders.
  • Apply planning for bikeshare, transit, and parking systems that are complementary and integrated.

A Smart-Parking Program Starts With a Simple-Parking Program

Presented by: Blake Laufer, B.Sc., CAPP - Mistall Insight Inc.; Vanessa Solesbee Schnipkoweit, CAPP - Town of Estes Park.

Is your parking operation data-rich but information-poor?  Are you reactive instead of proactive?  Everyone is talking about “smart parking” these days, while many parking operations are still trying to get the basics down – things like counting, audit, revenue control, budgeting, annual work planning, and other foundational items common to most parking operations.  This session provides guidance on back-to-basics metrics with concrete examples from real parking operations.  This session is for both newbies and parking gurus.


  • Evaluate the “core four” parking metrics that form the foundation of nearly every KPI a parking operation needs, and why they matter.
  • Understand how to set appropriate expectations of all your stakeholders – your boss, your team, your customers, and your vendors – to ensure a professional parking operation.
  • Apply knowledge to elevate your parking operation to go to the next level – at any level or program size: dynamic pricing, customer engagement, communications, seamless technology integrations, and a positive reinforcement feedback cycle.

University Transportation's Role in Restoring the Campus Community

Presented by: Samuel Veraldi, CAPP, MBA, MURP - FLASH; Scott Fox, CAPP - University of Florida.

The University of Florida is limiting single-occupancy vehicle access to the core campus, which will create a sustainable and multi-use environment for campus events and meet-ups. Students and visitors will be compelled to navigate campus via fixed-route or on-demand campus transit, bikes, electric scooters, or walking. The less time students spend driving their own cars, the more time they will spend using shared transportation services or walking to class with their peers. This session will explore the benefits to the changes at University of Florida, as well as the challenges experienced in making those changes. 


  • Evaluate what is involved in developing a sustainable environment on college campuses.
  • Understand how to develop a plan to engage the community to create a feeling of belongingness.
