Penn joins a group of 193 colleges and universities in 46 states and the District of Columbia that are transforming the American landscape by providing more bicycle friendly campuses for the benefit of students, staff, and community members.

“Congratulations to the University of Pennsylvania for its inclusion in a select class of Bicycle Friendly Universities nationwide,” says League Executive Director Bill Nesper. “Universities and colleges are in a unique leadership position to help encourage and enable people of all ages—especially young adults—to adopt healthy, sustainable habits that can benefit them throughout their lives.”

Penn offers employees a Bike Commuter Expense Reimbursement Program as part of the University's Climate Action plan, as well as numerous services and programs for those who bike to campus.
