Inaugural Cycling Plan approved

UVic’s first ever Campus Cycling Plan is now in action. The plan provides a comprehensive and coordinated approach to support cycling as a safe, enjoyable and convenient mode of transportation for students, faculty, staff and visitors. 

As a guide for future cycling infrastructure, the plan covers bicycle parking, cycling paths, showers and change rooms. It also provides policy direction on strategies to improve levels of comfort and safety on shared paths and roads. Implementation of the plan’s policy recommendations and cycling network improvements centres on four key strategies: transportation planning priorities; shared space and safety; an expanded cycling network; and end-of-trip facilities.
