Bicycle Policy

Policy  The University of Virginia, in support of its Security Policy to maintain a safe and secure atmosphere for the community of students, faculty, staff and visitors to the Grounds, is committed to establishing an environment that encourages the proper use and parking of bicycles on the Grounds.

Encouraging the use of bicycles by members of the University community underscores the value of biking as an environmentally sound mode of transportation as well as the need to educate persons about the rights of those on bicycles. At the same time, the University must maintain a safe environment for pedestrians approaching, entering and utilizing buildings on the Grounds. It is important that bicyclists ride safely on sidewalks where permitted, and use bicycle racks for parking to ensure that their bicycles in emergency situations do not impede passage into or from buildings. It is also important that bicycles not be locked to railings constructed for persons with disabilities, or locked to trees, bushes, or crowd control chains/fences in order to avoid damage to the Grounds.

Procedures  In that bicycles are a form of transportation, it is the responsibility of the Department of Parking and Transportation to administer a program emphasizing the energy-efficiency, health-promoting and safety aspects of bicycling. The program will include the registration of bicycles, conducting an educational program for the University community, and adopting procedures by which violations will be addressed. Bicycle Regulations similar to Parking Regulations published by the Department of Parking and Transportation Services for the operation of motor vehicles on the University Grounds will govern bicycle use. The Department of Parking and Transportation Services will be supported in its efforts by the Department of Police and the Housing Division.
