NCCU encourages all students, faculty, and staff to bike. Biking is a convenient, affordable, and healthy way to get around.
- Campuses provide an ideal (captive) demographic. Millennials historically have a low-car ownership rate and are often more open to multi-modal options for their transportation needs.
- Parking on or near campus is expensive, particularly on a campus where a student is paying for the privilege of storing a vehicle that is used only 3–4 times a month.
- Campuses are a model setting and landscape. Campuses typically have the layout and land uses that support biking and walking over other transportation modes.
- Biking is transit supportive. Biking is an ideal complement to an existing city- or campus-supported transit system. Biking fills in the gaps where those existing transit systems may not reach.
