The first Bicycle Repair station in the Tampa Bay area has been installed at the University of South Florida on the first floor of the Beard Garage located off of Alumni Drive.  The repair station is convenient to use and offers an air pump and an assortment of tools.  The location is covered, providing shelter for users.   The station was purchased by the New North Transportation Alliance (NNTA), a public/private partnership in the USF area managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) with funding from the Florida Department of Transportation District 7.   “Encouraging bicycling as a mode of transportation is an important part of a sustainable campus,” said Julie Bond, NNTA co-chair. “We are working to make the campus a safe and enjoyable place for both bicyclists and pedestrians.”   NNTA has also provided bicycle racks that are installed in USF parking garages and at local businesses.  The station was installed by USF Parking and Transportation Services also providing space in the garage. Check out the repair station and let us know what you think.   Email Julie Bond at bond@cutr.usf.edu.
