Thea Junt, Energy Conservation & Sustainability Manager for UT Dallas Facilities Management, contacted us with some fantastic news about the UT Dallas campus, located in Richardson.
They just installed 5 Bike Repair stations across campus! According to Thea, the stations are for anyone who needs them – even if you aren’t a student. They are fixed units with a number of tools attached to them. There is also a QR code on them that links to videos/instructions showing how to make basic repairs.
Apparently biking is a big deal for UT Dallas. They also have over 1500 bike parking spaces (150+ bike racks).
And that’s not all. Thea also let us know that they now have a second bus route running through campus. All of their buses are bike-friendly, and Richardson Bike Mart is on the route. For UT bus routes, no DART pass or fare is required – just hop on the 883 or 884 to get around.
