News Items from UNC Greensboro

Vending machines at Oakland Deck and McIver Deck dispense tubes, patch kits, lights and other supplies for bicyclists, via Spartan Cash loaded onto your Spartan Card.

Plus, five bike repair stations dot the campus:
Oakland Deck
McIver Deck
Walker Circle
Gray Drive across from Gove Student Health Center
Spring Garden Street between Jefferson Suites and Tower Village

The stations at Oakland Deck and Walker Circle have been upgraded with better quality, heavy-duty Fixtation air pumps. Also, the stations at Oakland Deck and McIver Deck include a drop box for tube recycling – an extra way to “go green.”

UNCG’s Occasional Parking Program (OPP) for registered cyclists is also new this fall. Employees and students whose primary mode of transportation is a bicycle may purchase temporary parking permits to use when they occasionally need to drive a motorized vehicle to campus if the driver does not already have a parking permit.

$2 per day for Park & Ride daily scratch-off permit
$5 per day for A or C lot daily scratch-off permit
$35 per month for surface lot 30-day permit

Other benefits of being a registered cyclist include discounts at local bike shops and free emergency rides home.
