Rutgers Bus To Bike Campaign: Getting College Students off the bus and on the road

If anyone lives, has lived, or has ever been near New Brunswick, NJ you know about the Rutgers University-New Brunswick Bus System. Seeing as how RU has four different campuses that are not easily connected, a major highway and a river divided the four in half, the wonderful state school of New Jersey has devised this bus system. Don’t get me wrong, as a person who has used various forms of public transportation this bus system is awesome! The buses are clean, comfortable, and can usually get you where you need to go pretty quickly. However, as a avid biker I know that a quicker and even more fun what to get from campus to campus is by bike, this is why I have create RU Bus To Bike.

RU Bus to Bike

RU Bus To Bike gives you all you need to know about bike commuting around Rutgers-New Brunswick. Highlighted routes give you the best way to go from campus to campus, an inventory of all the bike racks in the area let you know where you can park you bike and how safe it is, pointing out potential road/sidewalk hazards makes your commute that much safer, videos show you how ride and what the routes actually look like, and so much more. And all of this isn’t even the best part . . .

The best part about this site is that it connects to the community. With access to site, people from the community can update the road conditions and routes to make the site as up-to-date as possible. This is not only good for citizens, local government can use this website to better understand the needs of the community and try to alleviate problems that prevent people from biking and walking around the city.

So try it out for yourself. If you are in the Rutgers/New Brunswick Area and saw a dangerous pothole on the way home, put it on Rutger Bus To Bike, the useID is Rutgers and the password is bike.
