Some of the new rocks have already been installed near the library, Samuelson pavilion, and the Chilcott. Facilities will install the rest soon, along with plaques noting that the racks were paid for by the student fund.
With some “shovel-ready,” bike friendly infrastructure projects coming to Oxy, some next steps for biking at the College will be a bike promotion event/ride during Occidental’s earth day celebration on April 21 and development of a bike program/ space.
Discussions to propose a bike space/ bike programs are just getting underway, but some early ideas are:
- identifying a space on campus for a bike repair program/ bike kitchen staffed by students
- possibly creating a bike share or bike co-op program to make bicycles available to more students, staff, and faculty
- having students pay for a parking permit so there isn’t free parking as an incentive/ hidden subsidy to bring cars to college and rely on them as the only form of transportation
