About "Walk For Green"

  How often do you take a walk in the campus than getting straight on the shuttle bus? How much have you explored in our distinctive campus? Due to the hilly topography and large area at CUHK campus, most students and staff rely heavily on the shuttle bus services and their private vehicles transporting around the campus. Amongst the bus passengers, many took the buses for short distances (one stop) and this would create a higher demand for shuttle bus services. Our Campus Master Plan recommended that the establishment of vertical transports and pedestrian routes can facilitate more people to walk. With improved walkways and the completion of facilities on vertical transport , walking is definitely a greener and healthier alternative to vehicular transport.

  Walking is a good and easy to do physical exercise and can help to reduce carbon emission. To facilitate more users to walk in the campus, Estates Management Office, together with Information Technology Service Centre and Physical Education Unit, launched and promoted ‘Walk for Green’ to staff and student. A few recommended walking routes equipped with card readers were established to record the trips (points) completed by CUHK staff and students. You will be awarded as “The Green Walker” once certain points are achieved within the specified period.

  The ‘Walk for Green’ programme is named with the Chinese Title 「大」「部」行 which refers to the recommended first walking route between University MTR Station and Central Campus (Card readers for the first route were installed at YIA and Ho Sin Hang Engineering Building). Six card readers are available at present reaching New Asia College and United College. More card readers will be available soon reaching to further locations in the campus.

「大」「部」行名稱的由來是根據第一條建議路線 (亦是較多人使用的路線) 的地點而命名的,
「大」指大學站、「部」指大學本部 (第一條建議路線的拍卡器安裝於康本學術園和何善衡工程學大樓)。時至今日,拍卡器已增至六個,建議路線已達新亞和聯合書院,稍後還會伸延至校園更遠的地方。
