– By Amy Brunvand

A group of University of Utah students from a Global Change & Society course are trying to clean the air with the MovingU project to reduce automobile traffic to the University of Utah campus. MovingU uses social media, a sustainable transportation map, and orientation materials to promote sustainable transportation options. As part of the project the students gathered personal essays about how air quality affects people personally. One of the essays selected for the project is “How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bus” by CATALYST Environews reporter Amy Brun­vand.
