Universities have critical roles in championing sustainable development goals (SDGs) within and around campus in the continuous effort to make the world a better and greener place. Accomplishing the SDGs will rely on advances in sustainable transportation. In recent decades, many universities around the world have begun adopting the sustainable transportation concept through the implementation of various strategies. This research focuses on assessing the current sustainable transport practices implemented in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Puncak Alam Campus, Selangor Malaysia. The literature review outlines the current research agenda and most effective strategies for promoting sustainable transportation practices within and around university campuses. After that, the condition of existing facilities and strategies related to sustainable transportation in the UiTM Puncak Alam campus is evaluated using observation methods. The results include recommendations and a framework for administrating, implementing and enhancing a sustainable transportation system thereby increasing the communities’ use of sustainable transportation to, from, and within the university campus.
