Earth Day Sunday Getting to Church Challenge

Earth on stove

Sunday, April 24

Although the time for New Year’s resolutions has past, the Climate Action Team is challenging you to find a more sustainable way to get to church for the Earth Day Sunday service on April 24.

Many of us drive our cars to church, but there are alternatives. Plan now, and consider busing, light rail, carpooling, biking, or walking. Yes, it may take more time, but it will be a start at reducing CO2 emissions. Watch the Gateway in weeks to come to find out how the Climate Action Team will record your efforts to use less fossil fuel to come to UUC. Consider it an adventure!

To help you start planning, James Williams has created a list (below) of specific bus and light rail connections which will get you to UUC on Sundays.

Public transportation to and from University Unitarian Church

Link Light rail runs about every 10 minutes through most of the day on Sundays. They run about every 8 minutes during the busiest times on weekdays.

Metro bus routes 62 and 65 are convenient routes that serve University Unitarian Church. They both run about every 15 minutes on Sunday morning and afternoon.

  • Metro route 62 from the Roosevelt Link light rail station. Catch the bus on the south side of NE 65th St. between Roosevelt Ave NE and 12th Ave NE. Metro route 62 Sunday schedule:
