Project Theme: Transportation
Project Description: The Campus Bicycle Initiative will promote bicycling as a sustainable mode of transportation and educate the campus about safe bicycling habits through events and bicycling workshops. CBI will also support the expansion of BicyCAL’s mechanical and educational services.
Goals: Increase campus bicycle security awareness by registering more campus bicycles with the CSO bicycle licensing program. Increase and record the number of bicycle repairs at BicyCal’s shop. Hold a series of bicycle safety workshops for students, faculty, and staff. Increase campus bicycle ridership to 450 new riders and reduce transportation emissions of CO2 by 1%. Measure campus bicycling rates through Bike to Work and Bike to Campus Days, self-reporting in upcoming UC Transportation and Housing Surveys, counts of bicycle rack occupancy, and bike repairs at BicyCAL.
