UAF Campus Safety Project

The UAF Green Bikes program has been working to create a safer environment for those riding bikes on campus.

Putting the car keys down can reduce monthly costs - not only does riding your bike reduce fuel consumption, but health care costs can decrease too! UAF has been experiencing an increase in bicycle traffic as more people have started commuting into campus by bicycle. Safety is our upmost concern, so we have been working on solutions to dangerous areas around campus.

To help make the campus a safer place for bicyclists a proposal was created and presented to the UAF Master Planning Committee in Spring of 2012. The proposal included a public input that was collected via an online map survey, developed with assistance from Kittelson and Associates. Visitors could place notes tagging specific areas on campus that they thought needed some improvement. Comments were also collected by a physical survey board and an additional online survey through the Green Bikes website.

Below you can find the official proposal and comments collected for the project.
