The condition of cycling facilities at La Trobe University has been too low for too long. Often cyclists who arrive on campus will not be able to find adequate or secure shelter for the their bikes, and are frustrated by the general lack of other facilities and support.
Only 2% of students currently cycle to university, far fewer than those who live close enough to do so. The La Trobe Student Union believes that the University must do more to improve the quality of facilities for cyclists, and attract more students to choose to ride to university.
This is also in the interests of students for whom riding is not a viable option, as increased cycling will reduce pressure on the parking and tram systems.
We the undersigned call upon the University to substantially improve the quality and quantity of cycling facilities available to students at La Trobe University, including racks, paths, discounts and shelters.
The Improve Cycling Facilities at La Trobe University petition to La Trobe University was written by Daniel and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
