    All, Happy Monday! Last week was a steady busy one. We routinely had peaks of busyness and fallow valleys. We had 97 visitors through the doors, including staff. We grossed $951.50.

    All, this past week we had 107 visitors. We grossed $1,185.60. We sold 11 memberships; 1 bike for $120; 1 build-a-bike for $75.

Description

Departmental Bike Sharing is a concept where University Departments would purchase a small number of bicycles to be made available to staff, faculty and graduate students for on-campus use during working hours.

Want to discuss options or interest in departmental bike share? Email bike@illinois.edu to get information and talk to a staff member that can give you more information.

The first department that implemented such a program was the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health (KCH).  Additional programs are being implemented at the Sustainability Living Learning Community in Lincoln Avenue Residence Hall, Facilities & Services, and potentially other departments.

Conclusion

The efforts for departmental bike sharing have become known as departmental bicycle fleets, as of FY17.  These bicycles will be owned by the University, and incorporated into the existing motor vehicle fleets as a sustainable option for on-campus work.
