(March 11, 2014) ― Voting is now underway for the name of the new Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library (WWBL) fleet. Vote now through Friday, March 14. Each person may only vote once. Only current UK students and employees will be permitted to vote.

Wildcat on a BikeThe new WWBL program will feature a fleet of 100 bicycles earmarked for students living in campus housing who sign a commitment not to bring a car to Lexington. The bicycles for this program will be 8-speed commuter bicycles equipped with fenders, a rear rack, a bell, and a lock. Participating students will be guaranteed the bicycle for the entire academic year.

The addition of the new bicycles was made possible by a funding partnership between the Student Sustainability Council and Parking and Transportation Services. All participants will also receive a bicycle helmet, thanks to the UK HealthCare Level I Trauma Program.
