Marquette Sustainability is excited to announce the installation of four bike repair stations around campus. The initiative is a joint effort between Marquette Sustainability, Facilities Planning and Management and the Residential Life Leadership Board. The bike repair stations aide an effort to become a more bicycle-friendly campus for all, which supports avid commuters, the surrounding community and those who are ready to purchase a bike or bring one to campus.
Each station is equipped with an air pump, tools to perform common bicycle maintenance like changing a tire or tightening gears, and a rack to hang your bike on while you work on it. The four stations can be found near the bike racks outside of Eckstein Hall, the Alumni Memorial Union, the Olin Engineering overhang and inside the first floor of the 16th street parking structure.
Building a sustainable community requires the ideas, effort and leadership of many. Without the work of sustainability intern Miriam Schwabe, the student leadership of the Residential Life Leadership Board and the facilities services team who installed the stations, this project would never have come to fruition.
