The Association for Commuter Transportation recently honored the Texas A&M Transportation Services’ alternative transportation program with the 2016 Marketing and Community Outreach Award for its efforts in promoting cycling on campus.

Presented at the association’s international conference in Portland, Oregon, earlier this summer, the award recognized the program’s weekly “Wheeler Wednesday” events offering students free bicycle checkups and educational sessions.

“This is an outstanding accomplishment for our department and a testament to our goal of achieving a more bike friendly campus here at Texas A&M,” said Peter Lange, executive director of Transportation Services. “The Alternative Transportation unit is transforming the way we look at cycling and the successful implementation of Wheeler Wednesday is yet another way we can serve the needs of the biking community.”

In 2015, the campus achieved a “Bike Friendly University” designation.
