The Department of Transportation Services is proposing a 16.4 percent student fee increase to “balance the books” for years ahead.
The department instead plans to continue evaluating the feasibility of bike lanes on campus before applying to the Student Facilities Fund.
Although there is more parking capacity than micromobility vehicles, students say they still struggle to find parking in certain parts of campus.
On the tours, DOTS requires participants to wear a helmet and travel on roads and trails around campus to avoid sidewalks.
On campus, the rideshare e-scooters and e-bikes are not operational from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Students are frustrated by this university’s failure to address persistent complaints about micromobility infrastructure on campus.
Studies show painted crosswalks help drivers identify pedestrians and prevent accidents.
There has been institutional and student support for this university to convert Shuttle-UM to electric buses for several years.
The goal is to study feasibility and determine other productive locations for bike lanes around the campus.
