It's time for Bike Everywhere Month! May is a great time to break out the bicycles and celebrate biking. UW Transportation Services has several events happening throughout the month, and everyone is encouraged to join the Bike Everywhere Challenge and track your rides throughout the month.
The new U District Link Light Rail Station is scheduled to open in 2021. This is an exciting investment in our neighborhood that will significantly change the way many people get around. The U District Mobility Group, a community-led effort of neighbors, stakeholders, public agencies and nonprofit organizations, is holding a series of community workshops to collect community members’ ideas on barriers, opportunities, and potential solutions.
The brightly-colored bikes can be seen in most corners of campus, giving users a convienent option to hop on and ride to their destination. The new dockless bike share systems allow you to easily rent a bike with a smartphone app and park at any public bike rack at UW.
LimeBike has job openings for Field Operation Specialists, both part-time and full-time, seasonal through the summer or permanent. Read the description below, and apply by emailing your resume and a cover letter detailing the position you're interested in and why you are interested to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you seen Zipcars around campus? Zipcar and other car-sharing services are a good complement to your U-PASS membership, providing access to vehicles when they are needed without requiring you to own (and park) a car.
As a major research institution, the UW has a global impact, and many faculty and staff members regularly travel by air. Just how far, and the carbon impact of all that travel, was until recently something the UW could only estimate. Over the past year, the Sustainability Office has been working with student teams to gather the UW’s travel data, quantify our air travel carbon footprint, and make recommendations. The student teams also interviewed faculty and staff to learn about campus attitudes towards travel.

The Burke-Gilman Trail is swamped with puddles and leaves, but that isn’t stopping Ride in the Rain bike riders.
Beginning Nov. 1, UW students, faculty, and employees created teams to take on one of the rainiest months of the year as part of the Ride in the Rain challenge. Each individual logged trips longer than 0.25 miles online to attempt to meet 50,000 trips across all teams.
