NEW BIKE RACKS INSTALLED


Parking and Transportation Services has begun installation of almost 20 new bike racks at various locations across campus. The new racks will provide an additional 128 spaces for bicycle parking.

“As the number of residents on-campus has increased, and with more people taking advantage of the bike racks on METRO, we’ve seen a spike in the number of bikes on campus,” explained Paul Lozano, Assistant Director of Operations for Parking and Transportation Services. “Once this installation is complete, bike riders will have an additional 19 racks in 10 different locations where they can secure their bikes.”

These racks are the first of multiple phases of bike racks to be installed across campus. Beginning in the spring semester, PTS will examine additional areas needing increased bike rack capacity. “We have received feedback from the campus asking for racks in additional areas of campus. We will work on placing racks in the areas of highest demand,” explained Lozano.
