Zero Emission Vehicles Policy on Campus

Universitas Gadjah Mada’s Development Plan (RIPK) 2005 – 2015 provides instruction to develop the educopolis area, which is a conducive environment for the learning process in the context of developing multidisciplinary collaborations and responsive to ecological issues. The campus bike service management policy is one manifestation for this vision. In addition to physical health, the use of bicycles in the campus environment is also expected to support a friendly environment between students as prospective national leaders in various fields of expertise.

The means of transportation infrastructure on campus are arranged to consider various aspects, such as: safety, comfort, provision of fresh air, and connectivity between various parts of the campus. For this reason, priority is given to different types of transportation modes: the first priority of transportation development is pedestrian, followed by non-motorized vehicles, public transportation, and finally private motor vehicles. Beginning in mid-2011, the University organized Campus Bicycle services as described in this website ( Campus Bicycles is a further development of the UGM Green Bicycle which was initiated in 2005 by the Center for Tourism Studies (PUSPAR), Center for Transportation and Logistics Studies (PUSTRAL) and Center for Environmental Studies (PSLH). Campus Bicycles are provided for free in all faculties and units in UGM campus. In addition, Agrotechnology Innovation Center (PIAT UGM) develops an innovation of a green motorcycle. This green motorcycle is fueled by biogas and used for internal activities in PIAT.

Figure 8 and Figure 9 describe that the campus bicycle service at Universitas Gadjah Mada has already implemented an integrated computerized system. And then, figure 4 explains how to use campus bicycles. Because of pandemic COVID 19, the usage of campus bicycles decreased in 2020. Electric shuttle buses in Figure 13 will be operated in December 2021 with 14 bus shelters. For the meantime, the shuttle buses are only used by the university staff to commute within the campus.
