Transportation, particularly staff and student commuting, accounts for a significant proportion of Mohawk's carbon footprint.
Mohawk partners with Smart Commute Hamilton to provide Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs that reduce single-occupant vehicle travel to campus.
The college actively promotes carpooling, bussing, cycling and walking. The Mohawk Students' Association (MSA) provides a universal transit pass to full-time students.

Green Fleet Strategy
In 2019, Mohawk College implemented a five-year Green Fleet Strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs associated with fleet vehicles.
By 2024, Mohawk aims to improve fleet fuel efficiency by 20%, reduce fleet associated greenhouse gas emissions by 20%, ensure 75% of fleet vehicles targeted for replacement will be a hybrid or electric vehicle, reduce annual fleet kilometres driven by 10%, and reduce number of total fleet vehicles by 10%.
