ASUN subcommittee offers
e-mail listserv for students
Students with concerns about
bicycling and alternative transporta
tion can voice their concerns about
safety, city transportation planning
and the weather with an e-mail list
serv sponsored by ASUN’s
Environmental Issues Subcommittee.
A “Campus Bike Talk” listserv is
an open forum to discuss community
cycling issues and alternative trans
portation methods, Subcommittee
Chairman Tony White said.
“It’s something small that will
hopefully grow and initiate conversa
tion within die campus community,”
White said the subcommittee’s
long-term goal is to decrease the
number of single-occupant vehicle
drivers on campus.
The listserv is just one part of an
ongoing effort by the ASUN subcom
mittee to promote alternative forms
of transportation on City and East
campuses, White said.
Other projects include a creative
ad campaign intended to raise cam
pus awareness of available public
mass transit, a map of all existing
bike racks and a “Walkability” sur
vey focusing on pedestria§ concerns,
he said. .
Anyone interested in biking and
alternative transportation is encour
aged to subscribe to the online

However, Reagan said he had
not noticed a difference in the

cases once a year and the 8® Circuit
Court of Appeals every three years,
but they rarely get a chance to see

Lawyers in the case also molded
themselves to what they thought

Russell Bartholow, a first-year

sense and was something that he
wanted to happen more often.
