Mar 30, 2015, 16:40
One of the major components of İTÜ Green Campus project is making our Ayazağa Campus a “bicycle city”. For that purpose, an important step is taken besides the rapidly progressing construction of bicycle tracks. Construction of “Bicycle House,” which will provide all services of bicycle sale, repair and rental, started. The project that will be realized by the support of Yeşil Kundura will be a first for the universities in Turkey.

Construction of Bicycle House started in the area between the open tennis courts and the service area in our Ayazağa Campus. The project is intended to be completed toward the end of May.

The first floor of the two-storey bicycle house will be used as repair workshop and for rental. The second floor will be the sales area and special low prices will be offered to İTÜ members. There will also be designs by our academicians among the bicycles that will be in the rental units.

Green Future for the Technical University

One of the major components of İTÜ “Green Campus” project started by İTÜ Rector’s Office in 2013 as a multi-stage and long-running project is arrangements towards increasing the number of bicycles and pedestrians.

A total of 5 km of bicycle and walking tracks will be constructed by intensive efforts to grant İTÜ members the privilege of passing more time in the campus, pedaling freely and walking easily. 2 km of the tracks has been completed up until now; work is going on for a part of 1.5 km. New work will be started later for the remaining 1.5 km.
