UT Tyler Implements Community Bike Program
August 26, 2011
This fall, the UT Tyler recreational sports department has implemented a community bicycle program to encourage the UT Tyler community to use alternative transportation around campus, Jameson Adams, rec sports coordinator, announced.
Fifteen blue bicycles are available at the various bike racks located on campus.
“The community bike program is important because it will give students, staff and faculty an option to get around campus quickly without using their cars,” said Chauncey Deller, UT Tyler recreational program assistant. “This should ease parking woes as well as expose a greater portion of the campus community to the joys of alternative transportation, while bringing a stronger campus pride associated with the community property.”
A Dallas charity called Spokes for Folks donated the bicycles to UT Tyler, Deller added.
