I began the process of getting in touch with outside organizations today. So far, Open Planning Project and League of American Bicyclists. I will also be contacting Transportation Alternatives to see how they can get involved too. Tomorrow, I’ll be meeting with DJ, EH, TG (maybe), RS (also a maybe) and CJ to discuss how things are going and where they should/could be headed. The school semester has started so it is crucial for me to begin getting students and student organizations involved. I need to get someone from Student Life at that meeting… I also need to send Chris and Eva my sample survey questions… lots to do today to keep myself on track with this project. I feel like I need to make a list of all of the people who I think would be interested in helping me create such a program on the campus of Pratt. From outside Pratt to on campus resources. If I have those people involved, it may help me convince ER, EC and WS that they don’t just need more bike racks and administrative policies, but what they in fact need is a comprehensive bike program.
