Sidebars_aboutproj
This idea was made for the students of The Art Institute of Austin. To provide access to transportation without driving cars back and forth for a distance of less than a mile. Not only reducing gas consumption as well as CO2 emissions, but increasing the level of fitness for the students also. It is an all around benefit for the students.

The challenge that arises is having the school come together as a community to support the idea. Having students ride a bike instead of driving a car. Reducing CO2 emissions, increasing fitness, and saving money. The goal is to have the school come together to support the students.

 
Sidebars_solution

My solution is to provide bikes for the students in Student Housing. If we get the support and the request for the money from Student Affairs, then the bikes can be purchased and the students can then start riding instead of driving.
