Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee

October 22, 2015 | Comments Off on Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee

BIIC was formed in late 2010 by SGA, to bring together graduate and undergraduate students with staff members of the Georgia Tech offices of Capital Planning and Space Management, Parking and Transportation, Facilities, etc. Together they are tasked with improving bicycle infrastructure on campus through the evaluation of existing facilities, the creation of events and programs, securing funding for facility improvements, and other related endeavors. They represent a commitment of students and staff to sustainability, mobility, safety, healthy living, and a choice of travel modes.

Mission

The purpose of the BIIC is to improving the quality of bicycle infrastructure for the Georgia Tech community so that it is safer and easier to bike for health, fun and commuting, by:

  • Creating a Campus Bicycle Master Plan – Update: the Plan will be released in the Fall of 2015!
  • Recommending yearly project priorities
  • Identifying and pursuing a diversity of funding sources
  • Coordinating bicycle education and outreach campaigns
  • Promoting interdepartmental coordination for improvement
