Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety on University Campuses

October 16, 2015
1 p.m.

College campuses are unique physical and social environments with dense concentrations of activity — in classrooms, offices, research labs, dormitories, performance spaces, recreational facilities, and other locations — making walking and bicycling convenient means of travel. Still, many campuses attract students, faculty, and staff who commute by automobile, and most university campuses are surrounded and/or dissected by roadways that serve private automobiles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians. This dynamic transportation environment poses safety risks to all roadway users, including pedestrians and bicyclists.

This webinar will discuss some of the ways to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety in and around college campuses. Bob Schneider, with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will discuss the PBIC's new resource on improving ped/bike safety on campuses, while Todd Henry, a transportation planner with the University of California, Berkeley, and Kathryn Zeringue, the transportation demand management coordinator with North Carolina State University, will discuss the many ways they have worked to manage and improve pedestrian and bicycle safety on their campuses.

Speakers:

  • Bob Schneider, professor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
  • Todd Henry, transportation planner, University of California, Berkeley
  • Kathryn Zeringue, transportation demand management coordinator, North Carolina State University

Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session with the panelists.
