Led by Emily Allen, Student, Gallatin School of Individualized Study

A dynamic collaboration between NYU students, staff and faculty, and Time's Up!, a 20 year old nonprofit environmental group. The project was focused on salvaging and repairing abandoned bicycles, as well as conducting a bicycle use and parking study on campus.

The first phase of the Bike to School grant was completed successfully in September 2007. 50 abandoned bicycles were removed and reclaimed from various locations on campus. Times Up! Environmental Group volunteers, led by Mark and Emily, refurbished the bicycles and held workshops covering bicycle basics, maintenance, local law and more.
