Congratulations to Yale, for earning a Silver Bike Friendly University designation by the League of American Bicyclists. Yale became a Bronze level Bike Friendly University in 2012. Holly Parker and Team, you may take your bow now! Holly is a longtime member of Bike Walk Connecticut.
Yale reports: As interest in carbon neutral transportation in cities grows, Yale is working to become a more bicycle-friendly campus. The University’s recent efforts range from a new bike-share program to increased bike storage.
Elevating Yale’s Bicycle Friendly University status from bronze to silver was a strategy within our 2013-2016 Sustainability Strategic Plan,” said Holly Parker, Director of Sustainable Transportation Systems. “We felt that we had improved our offerings for cyclists by—among many other things—bringing a 50-bicycle Bikeshare to our campus, and increasing bicycle parking capacity.” Read Yale's announcement here.
Connecticut now has 4 Bicycle Friendly communities, 6 Bicycle Friendly Businesses, and 1 Bicycle Friendly University.
