UA’s bike valet free for 3 weeks starting Tuesday
Editor’s note: I’ve had a few little updates that weren’t worthy of their own post and I’ve collected them in this notebook.
The University of Arizona’s bike valet is scheduled to open on Tuesday and will be free for students and faculty to use until Sept. 24. According to an email from Charles Franz, the alternative transportation program coordinator for the Parking and Transportation department, the bicycle must be registered to be parked in the valet area.
Other interesting details from the document outlining the program:
• Tipping the valet attendant is not permitted.
• The Parking and Transportation Department will not be responsible for damaged or stolen bikes.
• Bikes must be picked up by 5:45 p.m. and will be locked to the rack if they aren’t picked up.
Check out the document for the rest of the details.
UA underpass repainting
Last week, the Olive Street underpass on the UA campus was closed to bikes because the pedestrian crossing zones were being repainted. This came just days after a collision between a pedestrian and cyclist.
Here is a photo of the repainted area:

Tucson Velo reader Edward sent in photos in reference to the opinion piece in the Tucson Weekly about TPD’s enforcement. The author mentions Mountain and Grant being a particularly bad intersection for motorists violating the law.
