For those of you that don’t know, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is spread out over 4 campuses and two cities. Since students can have class on any campus, Rutgers have created an intricate system of buses to get students to virtually any place on campus. However, spanning 4 campuses and 2 cities means that it may take an hour for students to travel a few miles to their next class. The amount of time spent traveling seriously cuts into the time students have to study and socialize. As an avid biker, I have found a way around the bus hassel. While it may take a long time to reach classes, all Rutgers building are within a few miles of each other, making it a rather quick bike ride.
While bike riding may shave 45 minutes off of your commute at RU, it may also shave a few years off of your life, IT IS RISKY! That is why I have crated websites like Rutgers Bus to Bike (www.mappler.com/rubus_to_bike) to show students the safests and easiest ways to commute around Rutgers and Identifiy any hazzards of biking. But unlike most places in New Brunswick, this website is not a one-way street. Students can join the website and add their own info about the website. In this way, Rutgers Bus to Bike was created by RU students, for RU students.
