"The main positive was the appearance of the campus regarding bicycles," Steedly said. "The main negative was cutting locks to move bikes leaving the bike unsecure."

Transportation Services addressed the issue of cutting locks by using university locks to lock bikes.

"This worked well this summer during testing since we saved many Aggies money by not having to replace a lock," Steedly said. "While there are cases where bikes must be moved such as safety and accessibility, our intent to minimize moving bikes reduces lock cutting as much as possible. If a lock is cut and the bike is moved, we will still lock it in a rack to minimize the possibility of theft."
