Taking Green Travel for a Spin
Pratt Institute has partnered with 511NY Rideshare to add bicycle parking and improve bike safety on and around campus. Pratt community members attended events with 511NY Rideshare, Vision Zero and Bike New York to get tips on bike safety, fitting bike helmets, and to register for 511NY Rideshare’s free green travel options and bike buddy matching.
“Educating Pratt Institute staff and students and the local community about safe bicycle handling heightens awareness and leads to safer streets in our neighborhood. Plus, we’re promoting clean travel, fresh air and exercise.” Walter Lopez, Pratt’s public safety supervisor.
With more than 4,500 students, making biking more accessible helps to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality on the Pratt campus and the surrounding Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn.
