What are the Issues?

053

041 038     One of the issues in setting up a bike sharing program at UIUC is the preexisting infrastructure issues on campus. In certain areas there are not enough bike racks to support all cyclists wishing to park their bikes. This leads to cyclists parking their bikes in illegal or unsafe areas.

     Another issue is the placement of bike paths. Oftentimes cars or CUMTD buses cut into the bike paths, making a real danger for campus cyclists.

    Available bike racks are often in disrepair, forcing cyclists to find other means of parking their bikes as well as leaving the bike racks themselves in disuse.
