A Good Reason to Support a Bicycle Cooperative.
The following philosophies and guiding principles are part of the current Campus Master Plan and support development of Alternative Transportation; many of which directly or indirectly address and/or support bicycling. They include:
- Minimizing the intrusion of vehicles onto campus and in the community
- Reduction of vehicular circulation helps with parking and traffic conjestion
- Developing (through the transportation and parking committee) equitable transportation and parking policies
- Give priority to alternative modes of transportation such as bicycles, buses, and walking, over automobiles. In turn this promotes a pedestrain friendly community on and off campus
- Development of a regional, equitable, seamless intermodal transportation system for a variety of options including walking, cycling, bus transit, commuter rail, and private vehicles
- The transportation system will continually educate and encourage students, faculty, staff and visitors to use alternative transportation modes
- Master plans and campus construction should utilize development practices which allow for mobility of pedestrians, bicyclists and automobiles by developing interconnected streets and pathways that increase alternative transportation routes and utilize Transit Oriented Development concepts.
