Earlier this fall, an article appeared about transportation and parking on campus and how that will be changing in the future. Colleagues were invited to make their voice heard via the survey and open campus forums.
Hundreds attended the forums and more than 4,200 responded to the survey. Thank you! Your feedback was invaluable and has helped us to move forward on alternatives that will work for you.
We also heard that a lot of you understand the environmental benefits to carpooling and public transportation and would enjoy the financial savings as well. We completely understand some of your reservations about using these programs and so we are exploring:Many had comments on walking and biking to work. Due to high interest, additional bike racks have been ordered to add to some locations, creating bike-parking opportunities in locations that didn’t have them. Please make sure to always secure bikes when parking, and never secure them on steps, hand railings or in front of doors.
Plans are being developed to turn these ideas into pilot programs this spring and summer.
For more on parking, see the article that appeared in Monday’s Now email.
