Cascade student government sets up bike rental program
Photos and Story by James Hill
The Cascade ASPCC has a new bike rental program for students to increase access to affordable, sustainable transportation. Students can rent 100-percent refurbished bikes from ASPCC for $15 per term. Applications are available in Room 03 of the Student Center and at the information booth.
Bikes come with fenders, helmets, bells, locks and lights.
“We can loan students a commute-ready bike for a term, or consecutive terms,” said Cascade Student Leadership Coordinator Kendi Esary. “Our local partners will help students learn to fix your own bike in free, DIY workshops. We will also provide awesome volunteer opportunities.”
The Cascade Campus (705 N. Killingsworth St) has the highest percentage of students and staff that commute by bike (10 percent) of any PCC campus. Esary said the Cascade ASPCC Bike Program is an important step in the PCC’s commitment to sustainability and reducing human impact on the environment.
