The University of Arizona in Tucson recently launched a bike share program on campus, which is available to faculty, staff, and students. The University of Arizona is a relatively small campus – about 1 square mile for the main part of campus – with a large population of nearly 40,000 students and some 20,000 odd faculty and staff. As you can imagine car parking and bike parking can become quite crowded, so it’s nice to see the university encouraging people to ride for short trips to and from campus instead of driving.Check out the video below, which talks more about the UA bike sharing program. The video is by Mike McKisson of the recently launched Tucson Velo. The goal of Tucson Velo is to keep Tucson cyclists appraised of important news, issues, and events happening in the Tucson area and was developed with the Bike Portland model in mind. It’s very nice to have such a site in Tucson and Arizona!TucsonVelo.com: University of Arizona bike sharing program from Mike McKisson on Vimeo.
