Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:
A brief description of the plan:
While there is not one centralized document known as the bicycle plan at UA, Parking and Transportation services and Planning, Design, and Construction have worked together to create a much more bicycle friendly campus through the creation of specific bike routes on campus, free services to bicycle riders such as free air, valet, regisration, and the addition of more bike racks and lockers for cyclists to use. The combined effect of these programs promotes bicycle use on campus.
Parking and Transportation is currently working (with Pima Association of Governements and the City of Tucson) on a "Campus and Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Network Plan (CABPNP)". This plan should be complete in December 2011. The purpose of this written plan is to improve bicycle and pedestrian conditions in and around the campus area for area residents, students, faculty, staff and visitors for today and the future.
The University of Arizona efforts resulted in a "Silver" designation status from the League of American Bicyclist (LAB) as a Bicycle Friendly University Program in March 2011. This is a four year designation and official LAB logo designations and signs will be received from the LAB for press releases and sign placement on campus. This information is listed on our PTS public webpage under "News and Media".
In addition, there are a few UA written plans regarding Bicycle Plans/Facilities. There is a Bicycle Circulation plan(June, 2003) listed in "The University of Arizona Comprehensive Campus Plan Appendix", page 73-74. The Univesity Area Circulation Study (February, 1997) likewise details bicycle and pedestrian planning throughout that document.
