I hear the Student Union is considering a bike rental program.
Well, Paul Balik has a better idea. Why can’t we have a system of bike borrowing? Swipe your ID card at a designated bike rack to borrow a bike. Return that bike within X amount of hours (24? 48?) or pay a fine. It’s totally doable – I’m told that Paris and Copenhagen both have such a system. We can pay for the bikes by raising parking fees by five dollars.
Make driving marginally more expensive to fund a self-sustaining, zero-emissions form of transport. It’s a no-brainer.
