Bicycling is a significant component of the University’s plan to reduce local traffic congestion and air pollution.

Each year, Parking and Transportation Services continues to work on improving bicycling on campus. Because it is important that every cyclist on campus be familiar with safe and proper riding techniques, PTS has partnered with The Center for Cycling Education to provide you with access to an online traffic skills course – the first initiative of its kind in North America.

This enjoyable, interactive training will familiarize you with the safest options for riding. It also outlines the regulations relating to cyclists on campus, elsewhere in Austin, and throughout Texas – not just your responsibilities, but also your rights on the road. Whether you are an experienced cyclist, or new to riding, this course will help you increase your safety and comfort while riding in traffic.

Please note: This subsidized course will not apply for dismissing a traffic or parking ticket you received while riding your bike on campus. This requires taking the ticket dismissal course.
