Bike Valet

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

In an effort to encourage sustainable transportation on campus, the bike valet project helps to increase biking on campus, reduce traffic and congestion at our events, and decreases vehicle emission. Grand Valley Bike Shop applied for the sustainable reinvestment fund from the office of sustainability to provide portable bike racks at events including the Farmer's Market, which serves the Grand Valley community and beyond, and our home football games which have an official capacity of more than 10,000 people. The Bike Shop received six portable bike racks, enough to store up to 50 bikes. It is staffed by members of the Bike Shop and runs much like a coat-check.
