Derozap - Bicycle Commuter Program & Dero Fixit Stations

Derozap is a campus bicycle commuter program to encourage individuals that work at the University to commute to campus in a more sustainable manner. For each day that a commuter rides their bike, they will receive a point. These points are then redeemable by the commuter for parking in the future. »Info 

Does your bike need fixing? To support University staff, faculty, and student bicyclists, Transportation Services recently installed four Dero Bike Fixit stations around campus. »Info
