5 Bike Repair Stations Across UT Dallas Campus

Posted in BFR Misc, Bike Change, Bike Friendly by dickdavid on August 14, 2012

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.

    Wow, great job UTD!! I’m impressed with the QR code videos and that they made the stations available for non-students & staff as well. I also did not know it was free to ride the Comet bus!

    This is sweet! I’m a UTD student and I didn’t even know about this. Thanks for the heads up!
