Transportation Artwork

At a recent Sustainability Council meeting, DU student group The Social Brink asked if we’d like to participate in a community art project. The group organizes students around social entrepreneurship and innovation, and their aim was to transform several old doors into colorful representations of social change.  We volunteered to create a transportation-themed door, and decided to focus on bicycle transit in honor of Bike to Work Day/Month. Scroll down for images of the painting process and the final result!

Space for a Rant

The Transportation Center Blog is considering the addition of a page that will allow you to submit pictures, videos, and comments of people infringing on traffic regulations. Is there something you’ve seen or a vehicle that you’ve encountered that really grinds your drivetrain? Perhaps you caught the culprit in action by video/photo or simply have a rant to share. We want to see/hear what went wrong on your commute. All transportation users are being asked to submit. Motorists, let us know if you catch a pedestrian or cyclists in the wrong. Light rail & bus riders, did something noteworthy occur on your commute today? And cyclists, did a motorist get too close to you or impede your ROW?–How about a cop car in the bike lane!? Checkout out the video below for an example of what we’re looking for and (please) fill out the following poll to let us know if you’d like to see more pics, videos, and/or comments like these.
