Our Five-Year Bicycle Master Plan is Taking Shape!

By lasu224 · February 1, 2021

UK Transportation Services is updating the University’s campus Bicycle Master Plan, and we’re excited to share with you what we’ve learned so far!

Last semester, we hosted a dynamic online forum that took participants on a virtual bicycle tour of campus and gathered their input. Watch the virtual forum and bicycle tour for yourself!

Over the last few months, we’ve continued to gather feedback, comments and ideas, while at the same time conducting a thorough analysis of the levels of safety, use, and comfort as it relates to bicycling on campus.

We’ve taken all of this information and built a Story Map that summarizes the most common requests, along with the places people both like and avoid, the conflicts and barriers they face, and their big picture ideas. The Story Map also illustrates crash hot spots, a stress analysis, and the routes most in demand for cycling. Check it out for yourself!

As this project continues, we would like to gather as much information as possible from the campus community. Please visit the Story Map to learn more about the results we have so far and to leave your feedback, letting us know if we’re headed in the right direction. Then check out the interactive map to add your own comments. Click here to get started.

At UK Transportation Services, we’re committed to providing commuting alternatives and intracampus mobility for UK employees, students and guests. Our team manages parking, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, e-scooter, and ride share programs – everything you need to get to, from and around campus.
We’re excited about the opportunity to make biking and scooting on campus even more safe and comfortable. Thanks for coming along for the ride!
