Bike racks around campus

Date Posted: September 17, 2010
The lack of an appropriate amount of bike racks or any at all outside of many popular campus buildings such as the UGL, State Hall, Prentis, and many others force many students to chain their bikes to lamp posts and fences. This does not promote a livable, good looking, bike-friendly campus. Several on campus students, especially ones that live in the University Towers encounter problems with the lack of bike racks in front of the building.

More bike racks should be installed if Wayne State wants to expand the population of students who live on campus and meet the need for the current student body.

I do not even live on campus, but I'm at WSU all day long. I would love to bring my bike and ride it, but i always get worried about where I'm going to put and if it gets stolen.

I agree, bike racks are needed in strategic places. Also the timing of traffic lights around campus needs to be changed to reflect pedestrian levels throughout the day.

I also don't live on campus, but I bike to class when there aren't inches of snow on the ground. Even the few bike racks we have are often over-crowded to the point of being difficult to access during popular class times. I've been late for class more than once simply trying to find a place to park--either my bike or my car in the winter months.
