The goal of this website is to provide information and resources for those who are already cycling to work and to school, and to encourage and support new bike commuters. It is a joint effort of the Green Team, BCIT Bicycling Committee, Facilities and Campus Development, Safety and Security, and Recreation Services.
You will find information on routes to BCIT’s campuses, campus facilities like bike racks and lockers, showers, bike repair station, and general cycling tips and resources.
The bicycle is the most efficient vehicle ever invented. It requires the least amount of energy per metre travelled than any other form of transportation – including walking. Bicycling also reduces BCIT’s carbon footprint by cutting down on carbon emissions.
BCIT is committed to promoting the use of sustainable travel to help faculty, staff and students adopt a more sustainable commute and contribute to BCIT’s goal to become greenhouse gas neutral. This initiative supports the Ecocity Standard for Environmentally Friendly Transport, which looks at how non-motorized transportation is supported and encouraged by the city and is used by a significant proportion of people for trips under 5 km.
