Class develops proposal to improve transportation safety on campus

Iowa State tasked Industrial Design 592, a class of engineering, design and community planning graduate students, with developing a transportation plan that benefits bikers, pedestrians and motorists. They generated a multi-phase proposal to reduce crowding and improve transportation safety on campus. Additionally, Student Government is developing a website for bike information and is planning to submit an application to be classified as a Bike Friendly University.

The Transportation Committee was formed by Student Government to review the proposal and explore implementation options. The three-phase bid concentrates on increasing awareness, incorporating bike lanes and programs into existing infrastructure and connecting areas of campus through bike-specific paths.
