UW Bothell receives grant to purchase bike lockers

The University of Washington, Bothell has received a grant from Commuter Challenge for $14,500 to purchase bike lockers.
   The grant is designed to encourage bicycling as an alternative commuting option, reduce traffic congestion, and celebrate the direct access now available between the Sammamish River Trail and the Burke-Gilman Trail.
   Commuter Challenge, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County, awarded the grant as part of its program to alleviate traffic congestion and promote alternatives to single occupancy vehicles.
   UWB has purchased 21 bike lockers, which are available to faculty, staff and students, providing a convenient and economical way to get to campus.
   The bike lockers are available in three locations on campus (south of UW1, south of LBA, and southwest of UW2).
   The lockers provide protection from the elements and security for bikes, helmets and other bike-related items. A Husky Card is required for bike locker rental. Call the UWB Cashier's Office, (425) 352-3246 for more info.
