“It’s an honor to be recognized for the innovative and forward-thinking projects born at the U,” Bob Baker, director of Parking and Transportation Services, said in the news release.
The Bike Center opened in September 2011 to help serve the 7,000 bicyclists on campus daily with repair help, advice, do-it-yourself maintenance stations and showers.
It also houses the Radio Frequency-Identification program – the first in the nation of its magnitude – that allows bicyclists to attach little readers to their bikes to track how far they travel. With this validation, they can receive incentives from employers.
The International Parking Institute awarded the highest award of seven categories to the Bike Center for its contributions to the industry.
“This program can serve as a blueprint for campuses around the nation,” Baker said.
UMN students have traveled to Florida colleges to collaborate with students on various projects.
When UMN students plan for a vacation, having trip cancellation travel insurance is a worthwhile commodity to check out.
