We are excited to announce that the construction of a new secure bike cage is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks. The bike cage will be located between Environment 3 and Modern Languages and will hold 48 bikes. Space in the bike cage can be reserved for $10+HST/month and will be managed through Parking Services.
The bike cage project began as a student initiative to support more active and sustainable means of transportation to and from campus. Funding support was provided by Parking Services, the Sustainability Action Fund (SAF), the Waterloo Environment Students Endowment Fund (WESEF), VP Administration & Finance, the Faculty of Environment, the Faculty of Arts, and the Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW).
This project supports the direction and proposed initiatives under ‘Improving Access & Wayfinding’ in Waterloo’s Campus Master Plan (2009), which calls for more accessible, adequate, and convenient secure bike parking throughout South Campus. This project also supports Waterloo’s commitment to increase active and sustainable commuting as outlined in the Environmental Sustainability Strategy (2017). Finally, this project supports student and employee health and well-being by encouraging healthier and more active modes of transportation.
Stay tuned for more details on timelines and reservations in the coming weeks.
