Congratulations to Yale University, which earned acclaim in the bike/ped world recently for being designated as a Bronze Level "Bike Friendly University" by the League of American Bicyclists.
Yale is just one of 44 Bicycle Friendly Universities in 25 states. Click here to see the full list.
At Yale, bicycling is on the rise, thanks to both a student and a departmental bike sharing system; “commuter counseling” for the Yale community, an annual Bicyclist Appreciation Breakfast and more.
“With Yale’s dedicated leadership in sustainability, creating a safe and attractive environment at Yale for bicyclists and reducing single occupancy vehicle usage in the city are goals for us and many in our community,” said Holly Parker, Yale’s Director of Sustainable Transportation. “We’re grateful for the attention this award will draw to the extraordinary combined efforts of the City of New Haven, local advocacy through Elm City Cycling, and the university. Together, we will continue making a difference.”
