Since my post two weeks ago about bike parking at Lewis & Clark College I’ve had the chance to exchange a few emails with the school’s Director of Transportation and Parking, Mark Morgan.
Morgan shared the following new information about the bike parking situation and other bikey tidbits:
“The most recent inventory of bicycle parking capacity on the Lewis & Clark campus shows bicycle parking capacity for 586 bicycles. Last year we added 19 racks (for 38 bikes) on the south side of [the] Pamplin [building] and 6 racks (for 12 bikes) on the south side of Templeton. This month we added 10 racks to the Copeland dormitory area. The 6 new racks (for 12 bikes) that will be installed on the South Campus are additional to the ones mentioned above.
Also, we added rear bike racks to the shuttle buses plus rear view video cameras for the drivers to see the removal of bicycles from the rear of the buses without getting off and getting behind schedule. The TriMet #39 bus serving the campus has a bike rack on the front.”
Morgan also says that he and his staff are currently working on an aerial map that will show the locations of all the bike parking locations on campus.
