Porter also introduced these improvements:

  • a new intercampus shuttle provider offers double-decker buses, Wi-Fi, GPS tracking, electrical outlets and USB ports
  • the new car-share company lowered the student hourly rate and allowed international students to use their home country driver’s licenses
  • the PTS appeals office reorganized to include a peer-to-peer experience with student staff

“I am honored to receive this award, but I could not have done it without the ASU team helping me along the way,” Porter said. “I would like to thank my director for allowing me to try new ideas, making our team the most innovative PTS department.”

The awards come on the heels of PTS earning the ASU President’s Award for Sustainability in April for its bikeASU program.

PTS administers parking and transportation options to assist more than 90,000 students and 12,000 employees in their travels to, from and between ASU’s campuses. It manages about 25,000 parking spaces and an alternative transportation program comprised of intercampus shuttlescar-sharingbicycle infrastructure and resources and partnerships with public bus and light rail providers.
