It’s time to implement WSU’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. If you have ever spent time reading the entire plan that Alta Planning conducted for WSU, you would be impressed.

It’s a fancy document. But that is all that it is – a fancy document. It means nothing until Transportation Services does something with it.

Every year, Transportation Services asks faculty, staff and students to participle in their survey and, every year, the results have been almost the same – more, cheaper, closer parking. Duh!

The office is the first to point out alternatives to parking on campus, like walking or riding a bike. But, as highlighted by Alta Planning, the infrastructure needs work.

So before another Segway is added to your fleet of ticket writers, why not throw some paint on the road to make a bike lane or add some concrete to fill in the gaps where sidewalks don’t exist?

It’s time for Transportation Services to take the lead and implement this plan –otherwise that fancy document is a waste of money.
