Mercer wins green honors

Mercer University earned an ‘A’ letter grade for its transportation efforts in the 2010 Sustainability Report Card, part of the Green Report Card’s Web site.

Mercer is one of 12 schools featured among the transportation leaders, and one of 105 to earn an ‘A.’

Mercer earned the recognition thanks to its trolley services between campus and downtown Macon, and its efforts to improve pedestrian and bicycle traffic around campus.

The school improved its overall grade to a ‘C,’ up from a ‘D-plus’ from last year’s report card.
