Some of Mia's Ideas:
- Have a good Bike Plan
- Hire dedicated staff to address transportation (bike) issues
- Develop a joint bike advisory committee between the university and college town.
- Educate students in orientation material - before they get to campus.
- Consider changing parking policy and costs.
Wouldn't it be powerful if the University's lead the way, engaging students to consider how biking can play a role in their recreation and transportation lifestyles? Not everyone can afford a car - and not everyone can live without one.
