Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:
A brief description of the plan:
Within the WKU Master Plan, they have addressed the following:
Promote walking and bicycling as a primary means of transportation around campus by planning for, creating, and maintaining 1) car-free corridors for pedestrians and bicyclists, 2) designated bicycle paths and parking and 3) safe pedestrian crosswalks.
By Summer 2006, identify and prioritize major pedestrian corridors in Phase II of Parking and Transportation Master Plan.
By Summer 2007, design and construct improvements to top three pedestrian crosswalks.
By Summer 2007, install a minimum of 120 new bike racks on campus.
Improve transit access between campus and nearby living, shopping, entertainment and employment areas to reduce the reliance on personal vehicles.
By Summer 2008, implement Car-Free program to provide incentives to reduce vehicle use on campus.
By Summer 2008, create pilot off-campus housing shuttle route.
