Walk, Bike, Board, Bus
This site explores the politics of moving. Who can move where, under what conditions? Whose mobility has priority? Why? How do communities effectively encourage multiple modalities for moving? How do communities encourage and shape spaces that feel safe for people who want to walk alone in the evening, or bicycle to and from their work and leisure activities? How does a community work on creating the possibility that all of its participants can move as they want, when they want, without worrying about being hit by cars, or without being targeted by people who would harm them? How do people learn how to walk safely in all weather, how to bicycle or catch a bus? How do we envision our options for moving? This site focuses on sustainable transportation, and also complete streets, and safety agendas like vision zero.

Commute by bike
UREC offers a bike rental for a week; it costs 25 – 40 dollars for seven days, depending on the bike. If you want to try out a bike before making an investment, give it a shot. You can always use the bike rack on the bus when you get tired!

visit parks by bus
If the buses seem hard to understand, set yourself a goal of riding all the bus routes that run on campus. You’ll easily start to see the logic. Once you’re familiar with the on-campus routes, look at the off campus routes.
While the hills around campus may cause you to think a board might not be the best choice for our campus, plenty of people use a range of boards.
