Campus community invited to participate in bicycle engagement events Sept. 21-23


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to participate in upcoming engagement events and online activities related to their experiences of cycling to, from and around University Park. Transportation Services and the Office of Physical Plant are working with national experts Nelson\Nygaard to create a bicycle master plan to identify campus improvements.

“The Bicycle Master Plan is a powerful project that will guide the university’s bicycle planning efforts for years to come,” said Cecily Zhu, Sustainable Transportation Program Manager at Transportation Services. “The various in-person and online engagement activities available over the coming weeks provide an opportunity to share the future of campus cycling.”
