The Claremont Colleges and Claremont Village are some of the most walkable places in southern California, and the Metrolink station is right at the front door. The area is also filled with residential and retail. So, there is absolutely no excuse for students to be clogging the freeways, filling the air with smog, and requiring ever-bigger parking lots just to go to class.

The City of Trees and Ph.D.'s is again showing that it is smarter than many of its neighbors. And, southern California could certainly use more such thinking.

Incidentally, Claremont even makes available the Zipcar car-sharing service. So, students there have very little reason to even own a car.
