Petition for Active Transportation
We, the undersigned, agree that students who use active transportation (biking, walking, skateboarding) should be represented in the University’s transportation budget. Currently, no dedicated funding exists for active transportation amenities and pathways, maintenance of those amenities and pathways, or programmatic initiatives such as the bicycle collective, even though on the busiest week days of the academic year up to 15% of students coming to campus are using active transportation. We sign this petition because we want there to be dedicated annual funding for active transportation, representative of these students, and in line with the stated sustainability goals of the University of Utah. At no point should this funding increase student fees.
