Project Leads: Greg Haet, Todd Henry

Sponsor: Campus Bicycle Committee

TGIF Mini-Grant: $2,000

Project Theme: Transportation

Project Location

2012 Mini-Application Submission

Status: Complete

Project Description: Two student interns will be hired to provide an implementation update of the 2005 Campus Bicycle Plan (CBP). The student intern will review the 2005 CBP, update the implementation and achievement of its goals, describe the status of bicycle commuting and circulation on campus, and include results of a consensus-based goal-setting exercise.

Goals: Provide metrics by reporting on, among other elements, the percent completion of the CBP goals and other status metrics (e.g. bike parking capacity, Bike to Work Day participation, bikes in buildings, regional bike commuting metrics).

2012-2013 Accomplishments 

  • Two student interns were hired to work with project leader Greg Haet on updating the Campus Bike Plan. The project has since been transitioned to Physical and Environmental Planning under the supervision of Todd Henry.

Mission Statement

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) provides funding for projects that reduce UC Berkeley's negative impact on the environment and make UC Berkeley more sustainable. TGIF will allocate funds to projects that promote sustainable modes of transportation, increase energy and water efficiency, restore habitat, promote environmental and food justice, and reduce the amount of waste created by UC Berkeley. Portions of the fund also support education and behavior change initiatives, student aid (via return to aid), and internships. TGIF is supported by student fees and administered through a student-majority committee and a program coordinator.
