Penn’s Cycling Commuters Get a Helping Hand

July 8, 2013

Two bike repair stations will open on campus in Fall 2013, thanks to a plan proposed by Business Services with support from Penn’s Green Fund. A Penn Current article explains more about these new resources for cyclists.

The bicycle repair stations are one of four projects awarded Green Fund grants in April to seed innovative, sustainable ideas from students, faculty and staff.  Others are the GreenVote app, enhancements to the Ben’s Attic website, and the pilot program of returnable, microwave-safe, anti-microbial clamshell containers for takeout food in the dining halls. This latest round brings the total number to 49 projects funded since the Green Fund’s launch in 2009. 

Fact

Air travel and commuting makes up 11% of our campus' energy usage.
