red bicycles

A Spring 2011 Green Fund grant funded the development of a bike-share program, PennCycle. The student-led project team worked in collaboration with many offices and organizations across the University to develop PennCycle.  The Division of Public Safety and Penn Police Department advised the group on bike safety and security procedures while Penn Student Agencies and Risk Management and Insurance provided support with the business aspects and risk waivers, respectively. 

The goal of this project was to offer the Penn community an environmentally sustainable form of transportation on and around campus, seeking to decrease Penn’s carbon emissions from travel as part of the goals of the Climate Action Plan
