The Parking & Transportation Services team is excited to again partner with the Office of Sustainability in celebrating Active Transportation Month. Together, we are encouraging the entire campus community to embrace alternative modes of transportation and explore WashU’s wide range of offerings.

What’s coming up?

  • On Friday, April 20, join us for Breakfast for Bikers. Free coffee and pastries will be provided to all bike commuters at Kaldi’s Coffee between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.
  • On Saturday, April 21, depart from the Danforth Campus for Bike Ride to Earth Day to Forest Park’s St. Louis Earth Day Festival.
  • (NOTE: NEW DATE AND TIME) On Thursday, April 26, Francesca DeRanzo, owner and operator of our local Velofix mobile bike shop, will be teaching a Bike Care and Repair Class from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. in the Church parking lot next to the Hitzeman House on the South 40 of the Danforth Campus.
