Facilities partners with others on new bicycle policy

By Emmanuella Aina


A new policy has been approved by the University of Houston regarding bicycle registration on campus in order to ensure a safe and proficient physical environment in support of students, faculty, staff and visitors.

This policy will help regulate bicycle parking on campus. It outlines the picking up of abandoned and seemingly abandoned bicycles, and details the removal of those parked in unauthorized areas. Registration for bikes is free.

As part of the policy, tagging of abandoned bicycles has already started and pick up is expected to commence in early June.

Some highlights of the policy include:

  • Prior to parking a bicycle on campus, every bicycle owner should register the bicycle with UHPD.
  • The Office of Sustainability continues to partner with Facilities and UHPD to promote this biking information along with other resources.
  • Facilities and UHPD will designate a time period at least twice a year to tag bicycles and other items attached to bicycle racks (including locks) around campus that appear abandoned. More information is available online.

Facilities is excited to be a part of this partnership and hopes that it will increase the use of bicycles on campus.
